West Rib Team – Camped at 14,200′

Jay Richards called in to report that the team has arrived at the site of the 14,200′ camp that is shared by climbers of the West Buttress and those attempting the West Rib, but opting to acclimatize before launching up the route, as our team has elected to do.

They will spend a bit of time letting their bodies adjust to the rarefied air before dropping back down to 7,800′ to head up to their route.  The weather is absolutely perfect and they enjoyed a great day of hard work pushing up and around Windy Corner.
