April 29 team: rest day

The April 22 team took a rest day yesterday at camp 2, sleeping in and eating big meals to regain their full strength.  From their camp, the teams can admire Mt. Foraker, look over Kahiltna Pass onto the north side of the AK range and also look up the upper Peters Glacier , which parallels the West Buttress massif to the north.  Rest days early in the trip involve skill classes, usually including the rest step, self-arrest, and sometimes clipping through protesction on a rope team.  When weather permits, the entire expedition will don their crampons and move up Motorcycle Hill.
