Lots of movement from our teams on Denali today...

AMS guide Noah on the 5/18-6/8 West Buttress checked in from 14,200' today.  After resting up from their summit day yesterday, they broke camp and moved to 14K.  They are planning on spending the night there and continuing down the mountain tomorrow.

The 5/28-6/18 West Buttress Expedition led by Larry Holmgren have arrived in good style at 14,200' camp.

AMS Guide Wes Bunch and the 5/27-6/17 West Buttress trip are at 11,200' and are in a good position to move to 14K once they get the appropriate conditions.

The 6/4-6/25 West Buttress trip led by AMS Guide Jeremiah Phelps reviewed skills in town today to help make the transition from dry land to glacier travel a smooth one.  They were scheduled to fly in the afternoon, but weather has delayed them until tomorrow.
