Team Williams backcarried from 14,200′

Gary Falk called in an update for him and Roger. The two of them apparently had to enlist some help to drop down below the broad and bustling 14,200′ camp, so as to satisfy a Park Service regulation that prohibits 1:1 guiding below 14,000′. They found someone to go for the hike with them, and walked down 700 vertical feet to the site where they had cached supplies a couple days ago. They dug up their kit, loaded up their packs and walked an hour back uphill to camp, in the company of a new friend!

Here’s Gary with a somewhat garbled message (satellite phones are not perfect!):
