June 19 Team Caches at 16,400′

The team made good progress ascending and descending the Headwall section of the climb. They cached a load of equipment and supplies at a site just below Washburn’s Thumb on the ridge above 14 Camp. This is the team’s first foray onto the “upper mountain”, which we define as the territory above 14 Camp.
