Denali - West Buttress

We encountered high winds while attempting to carry a cache up to 16.2K on the West Buttress of Denali. The team is discussing whether or not to continue. A lenticular cloud was also forming over Foraker, so we decided to turn back that day.

Re: Paul seems to be

Not standing on it really. I think it is merely wrapped around his foot.
