Mark Allen, Mt. Logan Expedition Leader called in with a status report today.
The team is healthy and doing well. They just finished a heavy schedule of work the last two days. And are now enjoying a well deserved rest.
On Sunday, May 20 the team carried to Camp 3 (13,400’) and spent one more night at Camp 2 (10,800’). Yesterday they moved to Camp 3 at King’s Col. The weather went from very warm to windy and cold at the Col and made for some extreme clothing adjustments during the day, but Mark says it is a beautiful camp with incredible views.
To this point the team is on a relatively slow schedule compared to others on the mountain, but the group feels good about this and it is good for their general acclimatization.
Tomorrow the team will make a carry to Camp 4 (15,500+) and drop back down to Camp 3 for another night at the Col.
