Hey everyone, this is Sarah calling from Alp 11/Team Meat Grinders and it is Saturday, June 22nd.
We had an adventurous day yesterday. We were all roped up and ready to go, when unfortunately one of our team members, August, bent over to tighten his crampons and threw his back out. So unfortunately we ended up readjusting our plans and we took care of August. We got camp set up again at 11,2 and kept heat on his back and took care of August all day, until we could connect with another team walking down last night. So August is on his way out of the mountains, and we’re really sorry to lose him, but he’s safe and sound and as far as we know he’s probably in Talkeetna by now.
This morning we woke up really early, at like 2, looking at the weather to see if we could move up to High Camp and it was too windy for us to go this morning. So we are hoping that we can head up to 14 Camp tonight. We’re going to get up really early and try and roll out of here probably somewhere around midnight or 1 o’clock, so we can get up to camp… (transmission garbled then ends).
