Shishapangma: Team Waiting out the Winds at Camp 1

And the heavy winds kept us bounded at Camp 1 today, folks. We woke up to clear skies that soon turned cloudy, but the if we had some hopes to move up early on, the everlasting winds killed it for today. We did what what we had to, and was rest, re-hydrate, eat, and fortify the wall we made around camp. Our forecast gives us hopes to move to Camp 2 tomorrow, so we’re ultra motivated for that. In the meantime, we know that the extra night here will be beneficial for overcoming the thin air that awaits above. We’re armed with plenty of food and desire to continue this fight, so stay toned for more. Everyone is healthy and eager to climb!

RMI Guide Elías de Martos and team.

Hey Gary, Looks amazing. Hope you are enjoying the view and there is plenty of coffee. Good luck and hope to see picture from the summit.

Building a wall certainly sounds interesting. No doubt many or most of you are experts at that having made snow forts as kids! (Or adults). Good luck everyone.
