From AAI Guide George Bieker Denali Team 2:

Today our team managed to complete the longest single leg of the West Buttress route, the move to Camp 1 (7,800ft). Over 5.5 miles we traveled, carrying all of the supplies for the next 17 days of our expedition. Through variable conditions, we managed to wand the route nearly the entire way. If the weather holds we will move a cache below Camp 2 (11,200ft) tomorrow and return here (Camp 1) for acclimatization. Team 2, Over and Out. -George.
