Team 10/Less Worse/Mo Better heads to bed well-fed and happy after moving up to 14 Camp

Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Team Less Worse/Mo Better/and Gaining Altitude All the Time.

It’s 14,200 feet here at Camp 4 and the whole team is here, happy, well-fed, and in bed. Feeling the altitude slightly, but you know 10 days of acclimatization getting here is sure paying off now. We’ll see how everybody’s doing in the morning, but my guess is that they’re going to be doing well. And we’re going to go pick up our cache down at Windy Corner (at 13,5) and come back up here and have a great day of it.

The weather has kind of degenerated a little bit, the wind’s come up and lots of clouds (lenticular clouds) meaning that we should be getting some weather in the next day or two.

So please stand by and find how we fare. And in the meantime we’re thinking of you. Ciao ciao for now.
