June 21 “Team Brazil” Backcarries to 10,200′

Yesterday the team left Camp 2 at 11,200′ (3413m) and walked down to their cache at 10,200′ (3108m). They dug up their buried supplies, packed them up, and hiked back up to camp. Now they are fully supplied here, at Camp 2. Their next move will be to put in a cache above Camp 2, at 13,200′ (4023m). Today is what we call an “active rest day”. A little movement that only takes a couple hours, followed by rest and refueling. Many teams will also take this time to go over technical skills like ice axe and crampon use, as it becomes more important as they leave Camp 2.

Here’s the update!
