6/15: Team and Quick Update - Earthquake and all is well.

We just heard from our June 15 Denali West Buttress team led by Noah Ronczkowski and Larry Holmgren. They are safely at high camp and they report all AMS teams are doing well.

This afternoon Alaska expereinced an had a 5.8 eathquake 75 miles SW of Talkeetna and they felt it on the mountain as well.   Mountain reports say some large chunks of ice fell at a few camp areas on the West Buttress Route,and throughout the Alaska Range, but no injuies or slowing of climbing progress have been reported.

All is well at the AMS HQ as well!
