June 9 Team at High Camp

The team took advantage of good weather today to move from 14 Camp, up the fixed lines on the “headwall”, to High Camp at 17,200. The views from this section of the climb are stunning,  and it sounds like the team enjoyed the views as they ascended. The climbers are currently resting, hydrating, and relaxing in their tents at High Camp.
