May 11 Hvitserk Team –

The May 11 Hvitserk team moved up to Camp 2 today.  They moved well, arriving at the 11,200′ camp in just about six hours.  The day began with a climb of over 400m right out of camp.  This ascent is called Ski Hill and is is the first real test for West Buttress climbers.

The plan for tomorrow will be to drop back down to the cache of supplies and gear that they had buried in the snow at about 10,200′ yesterday.  This will be a relatively quick and easy day, with only a few hours of actual work involved.
