Happy Valentines Day from all the climbers to their loved ones! Today was another great day in the mountains. The team carried to Camp 3 at 19,600 feet in rather chilly temperatures. It was really the wind that gave us a bite on the cheek.

Arriving at Camp 3 the team looked rather strong as they imagined what the final 3,000 feet looks like. I’m keeping it a secret for now.

The weather has moved back in and we are all lying in our tents drinking hots and listening to the snow fall on the tents. There’s a little bit of thunder and lightning also to keep things interesting. It’s safe to say we are all in siesta mode.

But first I’m gonna watch a movie….Roadhouse!!
