Denali - West Buttress Expedition

Mt. McKinley: Beren & Team Reach Summit!

Hello, this is Jake calling from 17,000’ camp on Denali after what was an unbelievable summit day.  The team is back in camp safe and sound.  We are having some dinner before turning in for a very well earned night’s sleep.  Everybody did fantastic today, we had perfect conditions.  It was a really beautiful climb.  I’ll give a little more information after we get down.
Just know that everybody is safe after a wonderful day here in Alaska.
Alright, that is it for now.

Bob, one more peak under your belt! What a huge accomplishment! All your training and determination is paying off. The girls and I are at the lake and we had spotty communication, but I was following your progress daily, sometimes multiple times daily! Keep your balance on that descent and don’t come down the mountain faster than you should!! ;-)
