The May 9 team moved up to Camp 3 at 14,200 ft today! It was a beautiful day, but a bit windy around “Windy Corner” unsurprisingly. It’s a big climb from the 11,000 ft camp to Camp 3, climbing some increasingly steeper terrain, roped up and using crampons as they ascend “Motorcycle Hill” and “Windy Corner”, a couple of landmarks along the West Buttress route. Tonight they are settled in at camp and everyone is doing great! Mountain Trip guide, Karl Welter, had the honor of calling in the dispatch tonight and says a hello to Katie!
