Denali June 5th Japan 8 8 Team Backcarried to 14,200′

The team dropped back down to their cache of supplies at 13,500′ today, and carried everything back to camp today.  They now have full stores of food and fuel, so they are now fully provisioned for the second half of their ascent.

If the weather allows, the plan for tomorrow is to ascend the steepest portion of the West Buttress route, in order to put in their last cache of supplies on the spectacular ridge above their current camp.

Here is Eli and Keizo, who unfortunately was cut off when the satellites dropped their call.
