Rest day at 11,000′

Eric Larson’s team is resting at 11,000′ on the West Buttress route.  Eric’s strategy is to acclimatize the team on the more traditional West Buttress route before descending to the start of the West Rib.  This allows teams to travel efficiently on the lower West Rib without having to wait to acclimatize properly, which adds up to fewer days on the actual route.
