Team works the Ladders and Fixed Lines

Hi everyone,

This is Ben calling in with Dan and Jim on Manaslu at Camp one. We had a very successful acclimatization day here, we slept in a little bit, had some breakfast, and headed up towards Camp 2. We gained about 1,200 ft or so, were at just a little over 20,000 ft. We got practice on a couple ladders, some fixed lines, the guys did awesome going up though there and back down here to camp! We’ve been resting and relaxing this afternoon, just finished up dinner, and heading off to bed. Tomorrow we’re going to wake up, have some breakfast, then head on down to base camp. We’ll check in again tomorrow and let you know how it goes!
