West Rib Expedition to continue up West Buttress route

Guide Pablo Parunjacas called in with an update on the Mountain Trip West Rib Expedition. Due to poor weather and more storm systems in the forecast, they have unfortunately chosen to abandon their original objective of the West Rib. Seth will be continuing on up the West Buttress route for the remainder of their expedition, in hopes of a safer summit bid.

Weather has forced them to stay at Camp 3 at 14,200 ft. for three days now.

Here’s Pablo with the update:
