Eben called on 12/26 to let us know that the carry to C1 went well. All members got the job done. It’s not an easy carry. C1 is located at just over 16,000 ft so that makes it a good pull from base camp. The terrain is a lot of lose rock, which makes the walking even more strenuous.
Next call should be to let us know that the team has moved to C1. That’s a real milestone in the trip. Getting everyone and all the gear to C1 in reasonable shape is no small accomplishment.
Follow their progress via the SPOT Tracker Eben is carrying.
