Lead Guide Rob “Durny” Durnell called in from 14,200′. The team has been busy for the past few days moving supplies up and down the mountain and he apologizes for the radio silence of the past few days.
A couple things have occurred recently – Sangeeta decided to head back down to Base Camp. She and Jeff Dobronyi dropped down to 11,200′ with another team and decided to wait for another Mountain Trip team before continuing their descent. Mountain Trip co-owner Bill Allen met up with them and along with our guide Rene Welty, they will all descend together.
The team has been ferrying supplies upwards and the remaining three climbers, Durny, Tamera and Jurgen, will all move up to high camp tomorrow and hopefully take a crack at the top on Monday.
