Watching the Weather

The team continues to wait for good weather before beginning our summit push. Right now our forecast is pointing towards a possible window some time in the May 23rd to 27th range. It’s about what we expected when beginning our trip and so far our forecaster has been pretty much right on.

Today there is a lull in the winds up high and a few teams are possibly going for the summit today. We wish them the best of luck.

It’s a tricky game judging the best window for the summit. Right now the Jet Stream is split to the north and south of the region. That doesn’t mean that the summit conditions will be ideal but a small, fast team may be able to get to the summit. The better bet for us is to wait for more stable conditions to greater ensure that we can summit safely.

So for now we’re still in a holding pattern. But we’ve got plenty of good food and we’re enjoying our time here at Basecamp before we head back up the mountain.
