Matt called in an update from the basin camp at 14,200′. The team has been waiting and watching, assessing the avalanche hazard that has been increased of late between them and their next goal, the high camp at 17,200′. They are optimistic that the weather and conditions are trending a bit more favorably than things have looked over the past week. Hopefully, they will move up high tomorrow and have a crack at the summit shortly thereafter!
One of their team mates, Hui Ling, unfortunately needed to say farewell to the team, due to work necessities. Good work, Hui Ling, and we’re sorry that things did not align a bit more expeditiously for you this time.
Here is Matt!
