Josh and team are ‘working their plan’. The team moved to C2 today. Our great Argentine guide, Martin, stayed at C2 with the crew to make sure all was good. While Martin was taking care of the crew, Josh and Nickel, each grabbed a big pack full of group gear and continued up to Camp 3 (high camp). A huge effort by these two guides to help put the team into position. As has been forecasted, winds are lessening and supposed to stay ‘lower’ for the next couple of days. Josh’s plan is to move to high camp tomorrow with the team, using a bit of extra porter support. Signs say Saturday will likely be the best day for a summit attempt and that’s exactly what the team hopes to do. It is indeed a ‘chess game’. Winds need to stay at a reasonable level and our team needs to stay healthy.
So far, so good.
