May 18 West Buttress Team – Rest Day at 14,200′

Climber Matt Zelasko called in an update on the May 18th West Buttress team at Camp Three, just above 14,000′.

The team is weathering a storm very well, with some extra downtime, reading, movies, hanging out in their Hilleberg kitchen tent, and of course extra snacks. As soon as a weather window allows, the team will make their push up the technical fixed lines and an incredibly beautiful, knife-edge ridge to High Camp at 17,200′.

Here’s Matt!

  1. Cameron. We are all thinking of you and hoping for a window of good weather for you and your team. Just for the record Helio Castroneves just won his fourth Indy 500. Of course we missed you at the race this year. Stay strong.
