May 21 Heah West Buttress Team in place to move to Camp Two

Climber Keith called in an update for the May 21 West Buttress team, who cached above Camp One in warm, bluebird weather. Denali is certainly a place of extremes; the team noted being too hot and likened the glacier above Camp One to Jamaica, while lows at High Camp far above them dipped down to nearly -30 degrees Fahrenheit through the night.

The team will likely try and make the move up to Camp Two at 11,200′ today.

Here’s Keith with the update!
