Guide Jesse Yon called in for the West Rib team who made the move up to 14-Camp today! They pushed up from Camp Two in less-than ideal weather, even encountering a fair amount of wind at Windy Corner (living up to its namesake!) on their final push up to camp. Reaching 14,000′ is a milestone for climbers on the West Buttress, and it will allow the Rib team the chance to get some great acclimatization time to prepare them for the more technical climbing that lies ahead. They’ll settle in at 14-Camp for a few days and their next steps in the coming days will depend a bit on the weather.
Unfortunately Jesse cuts out near the end of the update, but you can have a listen here:
