We had a good move yesterday 5/25 to camp 1. Sunny and warm. Plan on caching today. We ran into a couple ecuadorian friends (one guide Nico and his friend karl)at bc that had summited the day before after being onbthe mountain for only 3 days. Theyre resting at base to go for a single push speed attempt. We also flew on with Brandon and Lief the Mt baker rangers. Its their first time here and it was great to see some familiar faces on the mountain. Sunny and warm mid day today is pushing us to a sunset schedule. Leaving camp 6pm to take advantage of the cooler temps. Hoping to cache and be back to camp 1 by midnight. We plan on a similar later start tomorrow on our move to 11k camp weather permitting.
