Mt. Elbrus: Van Deventer & Team Make the Move to Camp 1

With yesterday's preview of the terrain between Base Camp and Camp 1, today's move uphill felt significantly easier to everybody. Everyone commented that it felt like we were walking more slowly, but were covering more ground and trimming time. In short, we were the best looking team on the hill today, in fashion and in climbing style. Once at Camp 1 we found that available tent sites weren't as plentiful a we had hoped, with a fair number of climbers here since it is high season. We managed a few spots in our outfitter's camp, before the guides broke out the rock bar to move a couple big boulders to clear one more. Everyone was excited to see the cook hut and celebrated our successful move with some gluvine. We are psyched to be up above the clouds with some great views. Tomorrow, we will take a rest day after two big days in a row. We'll refresh some climbing skills and enjoy our new home before focusing on moving higher once again. RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer & Team

It was good to hear you all were the best looking team on the hill; since, it is the first rule of mountain climbing, or so I’ve been told.  Glad the team is feeling strong.  Thanks so much for the updates, the best part of my days!  Keep the father/son team in check, they can be a handful.  Praying for safety, good health, and great weather.
