The last Mountain Trip team of the 2011 Alaska season is off to a slow start. They woke up late last night to get ready to move up to Camp 1, and they were living in a cloud. It was raining… and there was very low visibility. They decided not to force it, and spend the day in base camp. It was disappointing for everyone, as they are excited to get going up the glacier, but safety comes first. Joe called in this afternoon and said the weather was clearing up and improving throughout the day and they are planning on heading up to C1 late tonight, arriving early on the morning of the 2nd of July. Other than a slight delay, everybody is doing great.
Here’s Joe from Base Camp.[audio:http://mountaintripblog.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/audio-post-2011-07-02-05-39-15.mp3|titles=Audio Post]
