May 11 Denali West Buttress team cached around Washburn’s Thumb

The May 11 West Buttress Team called in an update from the route. The team is keeping up their good humor as has been the trend for their sat phone updates throughout the expedition!

Cached up around Washburn’s Thumb at around 16,200′ to put them in a good position to move up to High Camp at 17,200′.

Today, 5/24, they plan to take a weather and rest day at 14-Camp with several other Mountain Trip teams.

Here’s the audio update! This climber doesn’t mention their name, if anyone can recognize them by voice, please identify them in the comments.
