The Mount Bona team has been busy the past few days. They moved camp up to 12,300 feet on May 23 after a carry of gear to the site on May 22. They had planned a rest day for May 24, but with a good forecast and snow likely in the future, the team opted to go for the summit yesterday. All made it to the summit of Mt. Bona, 16,421’, and safely back down to high camp, arriving late in the day. The team will have a late wakeup today, but will push to break down camp and get lower down on the mountain in anticipation of some snow expected to fall tomorrow evening. The team still has plenty of time on their schedule, they aren’t planning to be flown off the mountain until May 28, at which time it looks like the weather will be clear skies again.
My congratulations to the entire team!
