Carry to 13,500′

Lead guide Mike Burmesiter called last night to report his team returning to camp 2 after an 8 1/2 hour round trip to cache gear above windy corner.  They broke trail again to 13,500′ but Mike was happy with the strength and motivation of his expedition.  Today they plan to pack up camp, travel the same ground again and continue on past their cache to establish camp 3 at 14,200′ or so.  They will be crossing or end-running some gigantic crevasses today, depending on the strength of the snow bridges, so stay tuned for the next report to find out how their move day went.
