Bilingual update from the international June 11 team

Does anyone speak German that could help us translate?

Alas, the Mountain Trip June 11 West Buttress team is so international that I can’t quite keep up with their language preferences. It’s always interesting to open up an audio recording in a foreign language.

The climber (who I’m guessing is Remo Bernhardsgrütter, correct me if I’m wrong) gives us a very detailed and I’m assuming eloquent update on the team’s progress throughout the day. Translation, as I said, is welcome!

Guide Ian gives a sign off for those of us who speak English. We know that the team spent the day caching above Camp 2 at 13,500′, and will head to 14-Camp today if the weather allows.

Here’s the update:

  1. Dear friends
    here a small translation of Remo’s message. By the way this is pure Swiss German!
    Everybody is fine, they reached camp 3 and deposited some material and went back to camp 2. They had a very sunny and hot day. They could dig a hole on 4300 m just in the T-shirt! For the weekend the weather will be Little stromy.
