June 15 Team – Birthday Girl!!!

The birthday girl and recipient of lots of very warm birthday wishes called in from 11,200′ camp.  This camp has high walls of snow and ice to the south, which make communicating with the satellites circling the equator quite tough…  Nevertheless, it’s really nice to hear even a brief message from Kat.

June 15 Team – Camped at 11,200′

Aaron called in, but the satellite phone lost the connection before he could finish his message.  The team is doing really well and is camped in the basin at 11,200′.  They plan to move up to the big camp in “Genet Basin” at about 14,200′ (4328m) tomorrow. The climb up from their current position ascends…
