Denali, West Buttress, 6/16: Tumolo

AMS guide Todd Tumolo just phoned in from 14,200' basin camp.  The team is doing well and is feeling strong.  They are moving quickly and that is an indicator of climbers that are well organized and strong.  Well done team!

Below are photos of the route they climbed today from past AMS expedtions.
