A group from New England - Boris D. (my father), Katerina V., Aleksey B., Dmitry, Viktor, Sergey M. (California) as well as several several other people from Russia and one other from Califonria just returned from a spectacular trip to Denali. They first climbed the West Buttress (standard) route in just 10 days. Then Katerina, Boris, Dmitry and Aleksey set out for the West Rib - a technical route rated Alaska grade 4. After climbing the lower part of the Rib together, the team separated - Katerina and Dmitry went for the summit (again!), while Boris and Aleksey left the Rib at 16,000 feet, descended to the West Butt, joining it at the 14,200 foot "medical" camp and then went down to base camp, following the WB from there. They reached 16,000 feet on their fifth day from the camp at 7,800 feet on the Kahiltna Glacier.
Weather was warmer than normal, but with many white-out days, heavy snowfall and often fairly high winds. Nevertheless everything went pretty smoothly - no accidents, very good time, and they seem quite content. Congrats guys!
p.s. unfortunately I wasn't there this year, but I'm definitely planning on doing it at some point.
