From 11 Camp, the team made a short descent to retrieve their cache. This system of caching allows the team to move manageable loads up the mountain and acclimate at the same time. The team arrived on the glacier with an incredible amount of food and supplies to take care of themselves for 21 days on the mountain, and while they are eating (!!) their way through the supplies they still have heavy, heavy loads. Lead Guide Karl is renown for his mountain cuisine and I’m confident that the team is eating well.
The team plans to put in another cache tomorrow, at over 13,000′.
