Congrats to Brent and his team - You led a trip last year when Andy Renner attempted Rainer and he and your colleagues will try again tomorrow (6/13) and I hope that you (literally!) paved the way for his group to make it all the way. Best wishes

This is Chase and team checking in from the Sulphide Glacier! After three days of almost constant snowfall we finally enjoyed a bit of a break in the weather and even had a few hours of sun. About a foot of snow has fallen since our arrival but the training has continued as planned. Tomorrow we’re going to venture higher up towards the pyramid and see if conditions are suitable for a summit attempt. We’ll check in tomorrow afternoon!
