West Buttress Update

IMG/AMS 6/25 Expedition just checked in. AMS Guide Travis McAlpine said they got in to camp this morning after doing a single carry from 11,000 feet. He said the conditions were good and they will probably rest tomorrow before moving gear up to the 16K ridge.

Travis also reported that Gowler's 6/27 expedition is at 11,000 camp. Also, Dusty sends birthday wishes to Rachel.

Below are some photographs from prior expeditions taken in the last couple of weeks.
