Yoshiko called this morning to report that the May 16th Team is headed to the summit! The team worked through cold and windy conditions yesterday to move from 14 Camp to High Camp at 17,200, but they still made good time—about 7 hours.They arrived at High Camp in the late afternoon, set up camp, and then rested, relaxed, and hydrated. Yoshiko reports that the team is packing up and will start ascending within the hour. It’s a “splitter” day, meaning it’s blue sky and little to no wind—perfect conditions for the team’s last big push. Best of luck to the team!

Here’s Yoshiko:
