June 21: Denali Team's 6/5 Gowler and 6/6 Emerson; Full West Rib team RETURNS!

AMS teams 6/5 led by Rob Gowler and John Sykes and 6/6 led by Nate Emerson, Dave Wade, and Llawang with the Armstrong family have checked in today from 17,200' to say they are poised and ready for a summit attempt once the weather and opportunity arrives. All is well and everyone is feeling good. From Nate Emerson: "We moved into high camp yesterday evening. Rest day today and looking at summit days starting tomorrow"
