Travyn reporting for “Team Mostaza” (= Team Mustard). Skills review on the glaciar of Antisana

Hi, this is Travyn from Base Camp.

Today we had a great day up in the mountains, doing a lot of skills work, some rope work, lots of work with crampons, up and down hills/steep hills. And then we did some challenging work in terms of crevasse rescue, where we were sort of hanging, trying to make our way up a hill and that, which was great, and a bit of ice climbing at the end, for some people who are a bit adventurous, and also some self-arrest. Pretty good day.

Tomorrow we head up probably to Advanced Base Camp and hopefully the day after, the mountain.

Thanks everybody.
