Guide Colby Coombs got in to base camp for a custom West Buttress climb with Vanessa and guide Larry Holmgren and Intern Josh Murphey. They went right to bed because they need to get on a night schedule. So they probably got up around 2:00 AM and headed out around 3:00 or 4:00 AM this morning. The conditions on the glacier are firmer and the don't have to travel during the middle of the hot day.
A funny thing about climbing Denali...people are super eager to get in and start their climb and equally eager to get off that mountain. All teams had a one day weather delay.
