Craig John called in early this morning from Shira Camp (12,600′). The group had a solid day of hard work ascending the steep trail, but were rewarded with clear skies and great views. It’s been a little cold and windy, and Shira is the first camp where you can really feel the altitude. The group is in good spirits and looking forward to the climb past Lava Tower tomorrow.
Keep up the good work team!
