Mike Hamill just called to confirm that they moved into C1 today, at about 10,000 ft. Everyone is doing well. Forecast calls for clear, calm and cold for at least the next 3 days. Oh yeah, it is Antarctica!
Plan is to make a carry up a long line of fixed ropes to high camp, C2, tomorrow. The ropes are long – about 4,000 linear feet. C2 is located just under 13,000 ft. Getting a good carry into high camp is one of the most important days of the expedition.
