Phil heard from the teams today, here’s whats happening...
Mike, Luke, Leandro and crew are all at C3, high camp. The gang is feeling the altitude but all are there and hoping Sunday provides the weather needed to take a shot at the summit. It was a little snowy and blustery when the crew arrive at C3 on Saturday afternoon but Mike reported he could see blue sky above. They’re where they should be and will take a shot as soon as the mountain says go.
We heard from Tye and team on Saturday afternoon. I think these guys are just having way too much fun. About 5 hours hiking from the Refugio Cuernos brought them to Lake Pehoe and a catamaran ride across the lake. A short drive, passing the waterfall Salto Grande, en route and they’re now enjoying the luxuries of the Hotel Tyndall. Tye couldn’t quit talking about the views. Simply spectacular came out of his mouth on several occasions. Logo Grey is their next destination.
