High Camp! 17,200 ft

They had another day of rest and acclimitization on Wednesday, and today moved up to high camp. They had another great day, David said the wind was just enough to keep it from being too hot in the sun today as they climbed up to 17,200 ft. The climbing is beautiful on the ridge from 16,200 ft up to high camp with some steep sections, and spectacular views all around.

The team made good time moving to camp today, and could try for the summit as soon as tomorrow if everybody is feeling good in the morning.

We'll be wishing them luck, and hopefully we'll get a call in the morning to let us know their plan.

Here is the call from David this morning as they were getting ready to leave camp.
