Alpamayo: Frank & Team Take a Weather Day

Although we were excited and prepared to climb when we went to bed last night, the weather refused to cooperate with us. We woke up at midnight to hail and freezing rain, along with six inches of snow already on the ground. After two hours of watching the weather and hoping for improvement, we gave up and went back to bed.

This morning the skies were scattered, but dry. After breakfast we were able to punch a path up to the base of the route. At points the snow was nearly waist deep. Most of the snow had come down from the face above and it felt like wading through Dip-n-Dots.

We are back in camp now, resting and hoping for better weather in the morning.

Thinking of our friends and family,

RMI Guide Eric Frank and the Alpamayo Team

We’re praying—and so are lots of others - Love, Pam

“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

Guys:
The pictures are spectacular. What a panorama of God’s creation! We’re praying for no hail and clear climbing. And we look forward to your stories when you return.
Best,
Bill
