Mike called in from our May 28th team, giving us an update on the team’s progress thus far. They have been having some trouble connecting with their satellite phone, so Mike apologized for the team not checking in recently. We are working to remedy that situation.
The team carried up onto the ridge above the basin camp, to an elevation of 16,400′ the other day. Today, they rested, in preparation for their push up to High Camp at 17,200′. The weather has been okay, but not perfect, and they really need a good day to make the move up to the next camp, as it is a long, tough day.
Here is Mike!
