5/20 D'Alessio Checks In

AMS Guide, Nick D'Alessio's 5/20 West Buttress Expedition checked in from 14,000 foot camp. All are happy and it is another beautiful day. They are doing a back carry today. This means that are going back down to the 13,500 foot cache (which they put in from the 11,000 foot camp a few days ago) and pick that up. It doesn't take long to get that done and then they take the afternoon off. Tomorrow will be a rest day.

Looking up at the summit, Nick says it looks windy. You can follow the weather ops from the National Park Rangers here: http://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/current-statistics.htm


Here's an example of camp set up..this is the kitchen/cook tent complete with a table.

Here's a bird's eye view of 14K camp with many tents.
