May 28 Denali Team Caches at 16,400ft

The May 28th team has been working hard, with good weather they’ve been moving right up the mountain and today put a cache of food and fuel on the ridge at 16,400 ft in preparation for moving up to high camp soon.  It’s a solid day of climbing from the 14,200 ft basin of Camp 3 up some steep terrain, fixed ropes, and then a beautiful but exposed ridgeline.  They are looking forward to taking a rest and acclimatization day tomorrow so everyone is ready for the final push up to high camp and then to the top!

Here’s Sean with the evening expedition dispatch:
