Hi Everyone!

We are back at 14 Camp after a great day carrying a load of food and fuel to the top of the fixed lines at 16,200’. Our team climbed strong and we were all excited to get a feel for the upper mountain and steeper snow and ice.
We arrived back in camp with enough sunshine left in the day to sit outside the tents and relax and rehydrate while our boots dried (and more importantly AIRED!) out.

The weather is looking good and we hope to move up to high camp soon and make our summit bid!

Hi Craig (and Team),

Good luck and keep up the great and safe work!  We’re all thinking of and rooting for you back here in NC!

Craig, after working up nearly 50 sea turtles yesterday I think you may have had the easier and shorter day!  :)
