Hey everyone, this is Sarah calling from Alp 11/Team Meat Grinders, calling from 11,200 feet. It’s about 7:30 in the evening and we are all tucked in bed.
We had a pretty nice, mellow day today. We got up early and did a backcarry, went and got all our groceries from 10,000 feet, brought them up here. Then we had a huge breakfast of French toast and it was nice and leisurely; we sat around and told stories and jokes for a couple hours.
And then we refreshed some skills, walked around in crampons, doing some self-arrest. And then had the afternoon off to relax, and read books, and take naps. And then this evening we divided up loads that we’re going to carry tomorrow. And had a great dinner, Don even made cheesecake for dessert. So life is good.
We’re hoping we can carry up to 13,5 tomorrow. All is well, folks are in high spirits. Looks like the high pressure is breaking down a little bit, but we are hopeful for tomorrow. We’ll call again later, bye.
