Greg Vernovage and crew made a ‘back carry’ today, picking up their cache at 13,500’. That means that all members and all their group supplies are now at 14,000 ft., aka Genet Basin. Nice.
Tomorrow is a big day. They will take their first shot at the fixed ropes heading up to the West Buttress itself. Somewhere on the Buttress, they’ll make a cache. Here’s hoping the weather gods smile on them tomorrow.
