Team 10, to be known as Team Less Worse spent a busy day at Base Camp reviewing skills and enjoying the food and views

Hello there, this is Team 10 calling in from Base Camp. We had a very full day of learning crevasse rescue skills, glacier travel skills, anchor skills, knots, and enjoying the great cooking of Emily, and the views around camp. It’s been beautiful weather up here and very pleasant to be here.

So tomorrow we are planning on heading up the glacier to Half Camp and we’ll be getting up very early for that so we need to go to bed right now. But I just wanted to say that we’ve been working on a name and we have came up so far with Team Less Worse. So, Team Less Worse, think about that a little bit.

Anyway we’ll see you tomorrow, ta ta for now, thanks for joining us.
