Denali Traverse, 5/26/14, English
AMS Guides Dustin English and Michael Gardner, flew out this morning around 9 am with team members Kevin and Dave to the Kahiltna Basecamp, but unlike most West Buttress climbers they will go up and over descending down to cross rivers and encounter the state bird: "the mosquito". Luckily mosquito head nets are lightweight. The team is in for a truly amazing, all around Alaska trip. AMS Guide, English accompanied the 2013 Centennial Climb celebrating the 1913 first ascent of Denali.We wish these guys endurance for the almost 25 day climb.
