Received the email below from Mike yesterday. Tonight they sleep at the Jose Ribas refugio at a bit over 15,500’. Shortly before midnight, they’ll be up and walking. Two guides and two customers on a completely custom trip – should be fun. Hope Mike’s weather prediction holds.

Phil- Great training day today and the weather is improving. They both did great with the technical aspects and were fine with the altitude. Heading up to the hut tomorrow for a summit day on the 12th- I’ll send some photos when we’re back down. – Mike
