May 29 West Buttress Team — Happy Birthday Gerard!

Climber Ross Jobson called in with a quick second update on the May 29 team, who were on the descent from High Camp at 17,200′ to Base Camp. During the call, the team had reached 11,200′-Camp just after midnight, after walking through the night. And as Ross mentions– Today is Gerard Crum’s birthday!

Happy birthday Gerard, from us at Mountain Trip!

It seems as if the team is having fun and enjoying the last of their time on the mountain.

Here’s Ross:
