Denali West Buttress, 5/12, Postle

AMS guide Mark Postle just texted from his sat phone.  He said that they made a carry to Windy Corner and that his whole team is doing really well.

They'll either be taking a rest day tomorrow or moving up to 14K, depending on the weather.

Must have been pretty warm on this cache day at the Corner!  Some seasons the wind blows much of the snow away at windy corner and in order to safeguard our caches from the ravens, we pile lots of rocks on top of the caches to keep the ravens away from our food.  This is a similar method used on Aconcagua.
