Hi, this is Linden checking in with the Island Peak Team from High Camp on Island Peak.

We packed up camp this morning and climbed to just shy of 18,000’, to our High Camp here on Island Peak. We are camped about 1,500’ feet below the glacier and will have some more moderate rock scrambling to get up to the approach to the climb.

We went up this afternoon to get the route fixed in. Everything looks good and we are planning to leave tomorrow morning about 3 a.m. for our summit bid. Our plan is to climb to the summit of Island Peak and then descend to High Camp and Base Camp and head back to Chukung.

We will give a call tomorrow night from Chukung hopefully with good news. We had a little bit of wind today so keep your fingers crossed that it will hold off until we are back at High Camp. The team is doing well and everyone is excited for the climb. We are about to head off to bed and we’ll check in again tomorrow.
