June 17th Team Carry Loads to 16,200 ft

The team carried loads of food and fuel up to the ridge leading to high camp at 16,200 ft today where they cached their gear and dropped back down to Camp 3.   It’s always a big day as they climb up some of the steepest terrain on the route, including the icy slope leading to the ridge where there are fixed lines for additional security.  The climbers did well and they are back down to 14,200 ft camp resting after their day.  They expect to take another day to recover and acclimatize tomorrow to get ready for their move to high camp and the push on to the summit.
