Phil called in this morning with a quick update… The team cruised though Jarila pass at 16,000ft today without issue. They went a step (ok a few steps) further to put in their next camp. This will help them get jump on tomorrow, their toughest day yet, where they’ll get up to about 16,500ft as they pass through Shingela Pass, then it’s down, down, down from there.
They’re eating well and the weather has been ‘reasonable’ for the trek. Bottom-line is they’re having fun and doing their best to take it all in!
