"Hi everyone! Team 'Changes in Latitude' moved up to High Camp yesterday after a long day. The weather looked awful down below, but yesterday it was amazing and totally clear for us as we moved up. We were thinking about going for the summit today, but decided the winds weren't in our favor. We will try our luck tomorrow and hopefully I'll be giving you a call from the top! Brandon and Helle went down and should be flying back tonight. Wish the rest of us luck!"
