Kirsten and Olivier summitted yesterday. She said it was fun and not too cold. It looked like they had a little bit of clouds and I bet that kept things warmer.
She called this morning from High Camp. She was in her tent which she said was snowing on her. When it gets really cold out the tents don't allow the moisture from breathing pass through the walls of the tent. So all of the moisture collects on the inside of the tent in the form of ice crystals and then when you move in the morning it snows on you. Or when the sun hits the tent and warms it up, it rains on you.
Tork is at High Camp and doing good kremer said. I have not talked to him yet. The weather looks good in there right now. The last time I talked to Tom his plan was to rest today and go for it tomorrow if the weather is good.
