Heading up for summit attempt

Hello Everyone,

The weather is looking pretty good several days out so we will be heading up to Camp 1 tomorrow after breakfast. If all goes well, and the weather continues to look good we will continue to all of the camps (2,3,4), before heading to the summit. A lot less snow and rain is predicted but with that usually comes wind, so we might have a little wind on the summit day, but should be a manageable amount. The team is ready after several rest days here at Basecamp. I will be calling in to report our progress up the mountain!

Thanks for following along,

Ben Jones

I understand the fear that wild places may […]
