Team 8/Booyahkasha moved up to 11,200 feet into some broken sunshine finally getting some views of the spectaular range around them

Hey good evening friends and family following Alp Team Booyahkasha, calling you from 11,200 foot Camp. The team made really good work today, a 6 hour journey to 11,200 feet. The team’s pretty tired, we just got finished eating dinner and we’re all in beds.

We’re going to have a late morning tomorrow, and get some good rest, and then go back and backcarry, go pick our cache up at down around 9,600 feet, and then use tomorrow just as a good rest day. So team’s doing well, weather looks to be improving, some broken sunshine up here, crew was finally able to get to see some views and they were pretty impressed with what they could see.

Check back in and we’ll have more for you tomorrow.
