Climbers: Paul Rose, Joan Clofent, Paul Watkins, Carol Masheter, Simon Boaz, Bob Sullivan

Friday, May 28, 6:26 pm Pacific time

Lead Guide Angela Seidling called at 6:15 and said:

"Today we got up kind of early and did a carry up to 13,5000 feet. We made it there around noon after four hours of climbing, took an hour or so to dig the cache and have lunch, and got back to camp at around 2:00pm.

We just had soup and hot drinks and now we’re going to take naps or rest until it's the official dinner hour.

This was the coldest day so far. We were in and out of clouds and it was pretty windy, but we were lucky that at the cache it was sunny and windless – that was the warmest part of the day for us. We had a good day of it!

The new name for the expedition today is 'Celebrations of Joy.' There’s a certain meaning . . ." [at this point transmission was lost and could not be reestablished as the satellite moved out of position]
