Elevation: 12,000'

Hello everyone:

Today is our rest day before we make our summit attempt. We got up a little early for a little crampon practice while the snow was still firm and familiarized ourselves with our ice axes. We had breakfast and then spent a little time playing cribbage. After lunch we had our summit talk to prepare ourselves for tonight’s climb. Everyone is ready and all we need now is a little good weather!

Keep your fingers crossed for us.
