Climber Max from the May 7 Team called in with lots of stoke yesterday after the team successfully made their back carry day from Camp 3 14,200 ft (4328 m) to their cache site at Windy Corner 13,000 ft (3962 m). So far, this was Max’s “best day of the trip”! Heck yeah, Max. We love your stoke!
This team as a whole should be proud of their progress so far as they are 15 days in and still in high spirits. After a breakfast of bagels and lox Max says the team found this downclimb with light packs and sleds relatively easy. Upon arriving at the cache site the guides and climbers dug up their buried supplies then headed back for some delicious tuna melts. Yum!
While our radio recording is a bit choppy on this one the excitement is contagious and we’re confident that this team is on track to reach their goal of ascending the fix lines tomorrow at 16,100 ft (4876 m). Keep up the strong work, team! We can’t wait to hear how tomorrow goes.
