Greg should be making a carry today up high on the West Buttress. Weather and performance of the team will determine exactly how high they go. They’ll move some fuel/food up, as well as a bit of extra gear. More than anything, today also serves as a good opportunity to further their acclimatization and get a feel for dealing with the fixed ropes and multiple running belays on the Buttress, itself.
Yesterday was a rest day at 14K. A little overcast, colder with a bit of precip and wind. But nothing major. Let’s hope it stays just that way.
