After taking it easy for the day at 14 Camp, Team 8/Booyahkahshaw is looking forward to caching at the top of the fixed lines tomorrow

Hey, good evening friends and family following Team Booyahkahshaw/Alp 8.

This is Phil and Danny here at 9 o’clock at night on Sunday. Another beautiful day on the mountain today; team took it easy today and we had a rest day up here at 14,200 feet.

Getting ready to cache gear top of the fixed lines tomorrow (16,200 feet), the team’s pretty excited, moving higher on the mountain. There might be a little snow tomorrow; we’ll play it by ear. And then it’s looking like really good weather for the rest of the week (transmission garbled).

Hopefully summit day around Friday and/or Saturday, you know the end of the week. So stay posted and we’ll let you know where we’re at.
