Mark called in this afternoon with a brief update:
The team left High Camp for the summit this morning around 7am. After a few hours of climbing they pulled the plug and turned around as another storm rolled forcing them back to camp in whiteout conditions. Everybody is doing just fine and had a blast throughout the climb. After a well deserved break they’ll pack up and head downhill to the landing strip this evening and wait for their pick-up tomorrow.
We’ll have some more details and photos from the trip in a later post, but that’s it for now.
Good effort guys!
