Climber Jake Wheeler called in an update on the Mountain Trip May 22 West Buttress Expedition on Denali.
It seems as if teams had a bit of trouble calling in last night, as many of the updates were either cut short, unintelligible, or did not come through at all. We can make out that the team ascended the fixed lines above 14-Camp and burying their last cache on the ridge at around 16,500′ before High Camp at 17,200′.
The team will likely head up to High Camp within the next couple of days.
Here’s Jake with the update. If any of you at home can help us decode this message a little bit more, let us know in the comments!
