Ski team moves up to 11,000 ft

Durny called in this evening from camp 2 at 11,000 ft.  They moved up this morning in whiteout conditions with snow and wind obscuring any visibility.   It snowed over a foot in the last 24 hours, so the trail from yesterday was long gone, but they were able to follow their course on the GPS and navigate up the glacier.  The visibility improved a bit as they got up to the 11,000 ft camp, but it is still snowing and windy.

They’ve been doing good in challenging conditions so far, but are hoping for a break in the weather so they can continue up the mountain in the next few days.
