Team Jaahnavi – Final Dispatch, photos from the expedition

Hey all!

We are just now getting settled back in Anchorage after a rewarding West Buttress climb with Jaahnavi. She is both an incredibly talented young climber and young lady. Her technical abilities, winter camping and travel skills and general climbing knowledge increased tenfold over the course of the expedition. Denali is an incredibly tough mountain and the experience she gained will enable her to tackle her future objectives and will benefit her immensely over the course of her seven summit attempt.  We are so proud of her accomplishments on the route and wish her the best of luck on her quest to become the youngest Indian to climb the Seven Summits.
