Hey everyone, friends, family, and loved ones, it’s Team Out and About/Alp 1. It is Wednesday, the 22rd of May, about 9:20 in the evening. It is a beautiful night out. The sun’s going behind the West Buttress; it hasn’t gone down, but it’s going behind the West Buttress so temperatures are dropping here, but it’s relatively clear across the range.
We had a nice day today, and carried up to 16,200 feet, at the top of the fixed lines. A little bit of cloud and light snow and light wind, but nothing too bad. Everyone did well and we’re hoping for some continued good weather.
Tomorrow we’re planning to move up to Camp 5/High Camp (at 17,200 feet) and get in position for the summit. Weather forecast tomorrow is a little iffy with about potential for about 4-6 inches of new snow, but light winds overall and warm temps. So wish us luck and we’ll call you from High Camp.
