June 12 West Buttress Expedition – Back at Camp 3

The team descended down from High Camp yesterday to Camp 3. Coming from 17,200′ (5242m) down to 14,200′ (4328m) can often feel very luxurious! Temps are warmer, camp is cozier, food is better. Everyone will continue to descend the mountain today as the march from Camp 3 all the way to Basecamp. They will cover about 12 miles and lose about 7,000′ (2133m) of elevation! It’s a long day, but the sights are stunning. Hopefully they will be flying out of Basecamp soon!
