AAI Guide Kevin Hogan called at 1:40pm PST with the following dispatch:
We’re currently at 14,000 feet. Yesterday we made a carry and cache to 16,100 feet and it worked out well. The fixed lines worked out great. Today is a rest day. Tomorrow we plan on making our move to 17,200 feet to high camp.
Chantel says hello.
The weather outlook for the next few days looks favorable, so it looks like we will have an admirable shot at the summit. Keep the mojo flowing for us.
A few messages to our family and friends:
Simon: Just wants to say hi to Karin.
Sarah: Wants Outward Bound to know they are rocking the electric feel.
Roger: Wants the world to know this is his quote: “tomorrows work out of the day, three thousand feet in 3/4 mile”.
Kevo: Says hi to Bob Gerry, and his mom.
That’s all for now.
