Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
We started off in strong winds today and headed out to find a spot slick enough for us to practice our self-arrest skills.
We found just the place 15-20 minutes from the Huts and practiced until we were expert in our skills. While we were out, it became clear and sunny, but by the time we headed back to the Huts for lunch, things had whited out again. All very changeable!
After a short “rope rodeo” to practice clipping the fixed lines in the field, and a Q and A session about our summit attempt, we had an early dinner in preparation for our 1:30 am wake -up time.
The weather forecast for our summit attempt tomorrow morning isn’t perfect but we’re going to give it our best shot. Wish us luck and check back tomorrow to see how our day went!
