Ryan called in for the June 11 Denali West Buttress at Camp Three at 14,200′! The team plans on being at 14-Camp for another couple of days to acclimate to the thinner air of the upper mountain, rest up for their summit bid, and refresh mountaineering skills that will be essential as the route becomes more steep, exposed and committing. From here, they will put away their sleds and snowshoes and trade them for ice axes and crampons. Above 14-Camp, they will ascend fixed lines up a steep headwall and continue on to High Camp at 17,200′. From there, when the weather allows, they will make their push for the summit!
