Jim Williams called in on behalf of the June 10th team. They moved their camp from the traditional Camp 1 to a camp at about 9,600′.
Jim reports that it was extremely windy while they made their move during the middle of the night. They are traveling on a night schedule so as to avoid traveling up glacier during the heat of the day, and believe it or not – it’s been pretty HOT during the day!
Tonight, the team will pack up once again and head uphill into a basin, where they plan to establish their next camp at about 11,200′. This is a beautiful spot, with towering ice cliffs to the south, steep snow to the east, black, craggy rocks to the north and a wide open vista, gazing our across the tundra to the west.
