The May 8th team had a big day today, moving a load of equipment and supplies up the fixed lines to a cache at 16,400 ft. The weather was cold when the team started out, but the ascent quickly warmed the climbers. The “headwall” section of the climb starts just outside of 14 Camp, and it’s a steep ascent to the top of the ridge.
(at 14 Camp, looking up the headwall. You can make out a faint line in the snow, which is the route along the fixed lines)
The person who called in the report didn’t identify himself, but I suspect that it’s Simon.
