2017 Denali West Buttress Expedition Team 6 (June 11 - July 1) June 15th
Huachao "Mike" Chen
Team 6 guide Wyatt Evenson called in. They have made it to Camp 2! The team had left their previous camp at 5am that morning, and were ready to go after a good move day breakfast of granola and breakfast cookies. They arrived at Camp 2 around 12:30. Richard then cooked up a good meal of chicken, raisins and veggies to 'fend off the scurvy' as Wyatt joked. Tomorrow the plan is to do a back carry to pick up the cache they left yesterday. This will put them in position to prepare to move to 14,000 Camp. The weather is starting to deteriorate a little bit. They started off with sunny skies with a few clouds to now full on snow that is supposed to move throughout the weekend. Just shows the variety of weather in the Alaska range!
