Holmgren Denali West Buttress

AMS Guide Larry Holmgren checked in from the 11,000' camp on the West Buttress of Denali today.   After four feet of snow and wind the skies are clearing today and they can see Kahiltna Dome, to the west.  The team is healthy and happy,  they are enjoying a rest day and letting the snow settle.  Tomorrow they plan to make their move up and around Windy Corner and into their new camp at 14,200'.
