After a good night’s rest the team hit the trail again, heading back to 9,700’ feet to retrieve our cache. The weather was great and everyone enjoyed the cool temps and beautiful scenery. It was a great day to stretch the legs.
Back at camp we rested a bit and then reviewed some basic techniques required for life on the upper mountain. Now reacquainted with our emergency ice axe skills and proficient cramponing, we are prepared to carry toward 14,000’ Camp if the weather allows.
 
Now it’s off to bed to be ready for a big day tomorrow if we can catch a break on the weather.

Found this great quote:
“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”  and I might add with patience and good weather
