Team 7 has made it up to High Camp. A little bit of cloud coverage helped keep everyone cool while climbing the fixed lines, however once up on the ridge the weather turned a little more challenging with some cold wind gust kicked in.

Climbing, skiing and mountaineering are dangerous sports. When you undertake an outdoor, backcountry, or an alpine adventure without a guide, you assume total responsibility for your decisions and wellbeing. Conditions in the mountains are constantly changing, and no guidebook or computer web blog can take the place of solid training and experience. Though this site features descriptions of roads, trails, climbing routes, and other natural features, you cannot assume that because something is described here that it has not changed since last observed or that it will be safe for you or your party.
AAI assumes no responsibility or liability for your use of the information presented in this blog. With regard to all backcountry travel and climbing, you must make your own assessments and decisions, and you assume all risks in applying them.
Good to hear you've made it safely to High Camp. Keep up the good work. We are enjoying following your progress back here in New Zealand.
