Lead Guide Caitlin Hague called in from 17,200′. The team moved up today on what she described as a glorious day of blue skies interspersed with light snow showers. The ridge is a spectacular place, with fun, engaging climbing weaving between rocky outcrops and along knife edged snow ridges. The exposure off to each side is tremendous, which just adds to the beauty of this elegant section of the route.
The day of moving up to High Camp is a really tough one. Many climbers feel this is almost as hard as summit day, but the June 17th Team did great! They are fit and ready for moving on up the peak!
The team is moving great and feeling really well, so they will take advantage of the first good day of weather to make an attempt on the summit!
