June 20 West Buttress Team – Weather day at 14-Camp

Mountain Trip lead guide Yoshiko Miyazaki called in an update on the June 20 West Buttress Team, waiting out weather at 14,200′ Camp Three. With very high winds on the 16-Ridge, the team is waiting for the storm to abate and visibility to improve before moving up to High Camp on the route. Hopefully the weather will improve in the coming days and allow the team a window to move up to High Camp and plan for their summit attempt.

Listen below for the audio update from Yoshiko; unfortunately she cuts out pretty quickly on the call. Sometimes during storms, especially with a lot of cloud cover, it can be challenging to maintain a satellite phone connection.
