This super stoked team made their way up to 17,200′ (5242m)! They are now settled into High Camp. They retraced their steps from their cache day, first starting up the Bunny Hill for a couple of hours until they reached the fixed lines. Here, they attached their ascenders and scurried up the ropes to the ridge at 16,200′ (4937m) from where they climbed a bit higher into High Camp. In High Camp, they will fuel up on Ramen Bombs and backpacker meals. Ramen bombs are bowls of ramen, beefed up with some instant mashed potatoes. Don’t knock it ’til you try it! They will likely be attempting the summit today, can’t wait to here about it this evening!
