“Hi there. This is Dylan. We’re still 14,000 feet. We almost went up to high camp today at 17,200 today but had to pull the plug when it got really windy on the top of the West Buttress, and we were sure it would be miserable up there. But we hope to go up Saturday and try for the summit as soon as people are feeling ready for it.
We have two new messages for you today.
From Jay: I dedicate this summit attempt to the memory of Anna, daughter of Bill and Gina. We’re still at 14,000 because of weather. We’re all eager to climb. This is a great team.
From Siggy: Please send a tons of prayerts for sunny skies to Eros and Aphrodite post haste.
So we’ll try to call as soon as we have more news for you. That’s it for now.”
