12,500 ft at Shira Camp on the Shira Plateau. Good day had by all. They’re getting higher now but everyone seems to be handling the altitude well. Sheldon’s voice message was short and sweet – Shira with everyone and everyone doing fine. That works for us.
Tomorrow is up, around and down. They’ll reach 14,500’ and end up at 13,000’ – Baranco Camp. As much as you hate losing altitude, it’s just what the doctor ordered – climb high, sleep low.
