May 20 West Buttress Expedition at Camp Three

Mountain Trip guide Matt Park called in an update for the May 20 West Buttress team from Camp Three on the mountain, at 14,200′, after a big push from 11,200′. The team climbed through the cloud layer that generally hangs around Denali Pass and emerged to great weather up high.

The team will spend a few days acclimatizing to the thinner air of the upper mountain; 14,200′ is an essential stop-over for the climbers to adjust to the high altitudes that await.

Here’s Matt with the quick update!
