AMS Denali 6/12, Fabrikant aka " Old men jimpy team"
AMS Denali West Buttress team led by Adam Fabrikant, Aili Farquhar, and Jim Williams has departed from Talkeetna to Kahiltna airstrip this evening to begin their West buttress climb with Steve and Shane. First things first, get setup at basecamp and begin going uphill tomorrow. We are excited to have Jim back up in Alaska, "with a career that has spanned three decades, all continents, and many of the world's hidden corners, Jim has forgotten more campfire stories than most of us remember."
