Denali, West Buttress ALL TEAMS Update

The 6/23 AMS/Mt. Professional Team led by AMS Guide Melis Coady team is moving to Kahlitna Base Camp today.  The team reached the summit on Sunday.  They took a well deserved rest day at high camp yesterday.  They are all well, we expect to see them to return to Talkeetna Wednesday.

 The 6/24 Team led by AMS Guide Josh Hoeschen have moved to high camp! They spent the today resting at 17,200' and are all doing well and feeling strong.  They hope for good weather for a chance to summit tomorrow.

The 6/25 Team led by AMS Guide Rob Gowler moved to 17,200 High Camp today!  They are doing well and are happy have arrived. They plan to rest tomorrow and review the route upwards.  If the weather is perfect they may try for the summit as well.

Way to go teams!  It has taken a lot of hard work to get as far as you have climbed!
