Denali, West Buttress: 6/2: D'Alessio and 6/3: Team Norway: Cleary

6/2: lead by AMS guide Nick D'Allessio and 6/3: Team Norway lead by AMS guide Beth Cleary moved to 11,000' camp today.  They are all doing very well.

They will rest/ back carry (descend to pick up their food and fuel previously cached at aprox. 9,700') tomorrow.

On Sunday, they plan to carry a cache of their gear, food and fuel higher to Windy Corner, in preparation for their move to the 14,200' basin camp.
