Elevation: 16,600 ft.

Today saw a lot of wind on our carry up to Camp 1 at just over 16,000’. Lots of difficult walking in loose rock, scree, and icy penitentes brought us up to our first cache where we dropped food, fuel, and gear that will be needed on the upper mountain. Tomorrow calls for another rest and acclimitization day before our move up the mountain the following day. We’ll check in again tomorrow.
