May 8 Team Team Backcarries from 13,500′

Mountain Trip guide Maddie Crowell called in from 14,200′ after the crew backcarried their cache from where they had buried it a couple days ago at 13,500′. It was sort of an active rest day, with a short 20 minute hike downhill from camp and about an hour hike carrying their cached loads back uphill.

The team is doing great and everyone is in really fine spirits. Maddie’s comment about sharing jokes elicited a lot of laughter from the other climbers, so hopefully we’ll learn a little backstory about all that at some point?

Here’s Maddie!
