Rest Day at Camp 2

Elevation: 18,000 ft.

Today we spent our last rest day of the trip laying around Helicopter Camp (our camp 2). There are actually pieces of a crashed helicopter lying all over camp! Bundles of electronics, sheet metal, etc. can be found scattered about and some creative climbers have even incorporated the debris into rock walls that serve as windbreaks for tents.
Our plan is to head up to Camp Cholera tomorrow morning and make a summit attempt on Friday morning, weather permitting. There is some concern about the wind but we’ll see what kind of conditions we wake up to.
Dan would like to send his love to his family; Kristin, Britta, & Anson.

Thanks for following along everyone, we’ll try and check in one last time before our summit bid.
