AMS High Camp Denali Teams Update

Its an AMS party at high camp on Denali's West Buttress today.  I'm sure they are very happy to be up there all together and they are having hot drinks and getting ready for the day ahead.  AMS guide/owner Colby Coombs phoned in yesterday from 17,200' with a report of mild temperatures and light to no wind and with the following teams update:

AMS guides Nate Opp and Adam Fabricant leading the May 25 Team plan to make a summit bid today.

AMS guides Mark Postle and Travis McAlpine leading the May 27 Team moved well to high camp yesterday and plan to make a summit bid today.

AMS guides Todd Tumolo and Dustin Eroh with our custom Team Taiwan expedition moved to high camp plan to make a bid for the summit today.

AMS guide/ Owner Colby Coombs and AMS guide Mike Gardener climbing with Paul H.'s moved to high camp yesterday and will either take a rest day today or make a summit attempt.

Today it looks like it is beautiful climbing conditions on the upper mountain.  From Talkeetna, it looks like a perfect day, see for your self below.

Here is what it looks like from Talkeetna right now!  The Alaska Range with prominent peaks, Mt. Foraker, Mt. Hunter and Denali (Mt. McKinley).
