Hey there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Team Climb For A Smile reporting in from Low Camp. We’ve now moved up from Base Camp up a couple thousand feet. We’re about 9,000 feet above sea level right now on the Branscomb Glacier, just below the actual massif ridge wall which is right above us, jumping up to about 3,000 feet (another thousand meters) above us.
Temperature’s about 13 below, that’s Celsius. And it’s a calm evening, even though the reports have been for high winds, we’ve been very blessed. The winds seem to be up on the plateau above us and not so much down here.
So we made very good time coming up here. Everybody’s in good spirits and we’re settling in for the evening. We just had our big dinner and just counting our blessings. Everybody’s doing well and the weather’s looking good.
So stay tuned for the further adventures of Climb For A Smile!
