Denali, West Buttress: 5/23: Opp and 5/25 AG- Japan: Stroud

The AMS May 23rd Denali Team lead by Nate Opp moved to 17,200 high camp today from 14,200'.  As did the AMS May 25th AG Japan Team lead by Alex Stroud.  The move is a long day and a lot of hard work.   I'm sure they are all tired and thrilled to be there.
