Elevation: 14,200'

We have two rest days in our legs and a good weather window predicted for the next few days so we are going for it!  Our plan, with safety at the forefront of our minds, is to move to high camp (17,000’) tomorrow and make our summit attempt the following day. This is why we have worked so hard to get to this point.  We are physically and mentally ready!



Happy to hear, that everything is going well and I wish you all the very best to get to the summit safely!
Love to my son Andy!
