Alp 1/Team Out and About enjoyed beautiful weather up at Camp 4 resting and practicing technical skills

Hey everyone, it’s Eric here with Alp 1, Team Out and About. It’s the 21st of May, about 8:50 Tuesday and we are just heading to bed.

We had a great day today here, on a half rest day here at 14,200 feet and a half skills day, covering technical skills with the clients on the upper mountain. Tomorrow we are planning to carry up to fixed lines (16,200 or perhaps 16,500) if we’re feeling strong. And then the day after that, the 23rd moving to (transmission garbled) position to climb to the top.

The weather looks pretty darn good right now, we’re in a high pressure system until approximately Saturday or so, so keep your fingers crossed that holds out. And we’ll give you an update with more, that’s all for now folks.

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
