June 5 Team Moves to High Camp

Yesterday the team was able to pack up in Camp 3 and move on up to High Camp! They retraced their steps from cache day, first climbing out of Camp 3 at 14,200′ (4328m) to the bergshrund at 15,000′ (4572m) where they clipped into the fixed lines with their ascenders. Here they spent a couple hours moving up the fixed lines until they reached the ridge at 16,200′ (4937m). At the ridge they ascended another 1,000′ up to High Camp. Now they can rest up here and prepare for their summit bid!
