June 19 team preparing for the fixed lines

The team spent a good portion of the day today practicing the skills they’ll need for the steeper climbing they will encounter tomorrow on their climb up to 16,400 ft.   They practiced techniques for climbing on a fixed line, and how to use the climbing anchors that the guides will be placing in the snow.   They had a good day in camp, and plan to get up early tomorrow to climb up to 16,400 ft, before returning back to the 14,200 camp for another night.

Here’s Adam with tonight’s dispatch from the team.
