Change of Plans for the Rib Team

Kevin called in today’s report. Based on the forecast of good weather in the coming days, the team decided to forgo the Rib and continue to ascend the West Buttress route, The team moved a load of equipment and supplies up the fixed lines to a cache site at 16,400′. Kevin reported good weather and great views from high above the beautiful Genet Basin. The views from the ridge are simply spectacular, especially of Mount Foraker.
