Huascaran: Elias & Team Move to Camp 1
Hello! Huascaran team checking from Camp 1. We left Moraine Camp this morning, and after an hour of steep climbing over the naked granite slabs that the receding ice is leaving uncovered, we ventured another 1,000ft of elevation up glacier.
Seeking camp was tricky, as there’s no flat areas, and there’s not much snow either to make them at will; digging into the glacial ice at 17,200ft is no fun.
We’re cooking dinner now, and soon we will be horizontal, as we’re planning on going up early to Camp 2.
Stay tuned for more,
