2017 Denali West Buttress Expedition Team 5 (June 4 - 24)
Vasyl "Bill" Radzevych
Team 5 guide Andy Stephen checked in last night. They successfully made it to Camp 3 at 14,000ft! their patience at Camp 2 was rewarded with a move day. There was luckily no wind around Windy Corner as they made their ascent, and with the temperatures agreeable and the sun covered only by a thin layer of cloud it made for a good day. Everyone is excited about having the best day of the climb yet!...And naturally very tired! Tomorrow the plan is to sleep in and then head back down to 13,200ft to retrieve their cache. Dinner tonight was a Thanksgiving theme with no cheese!
