quick update

It was windy up high today so Melis's crew took another rest day. She said that folks were pretty well rested up now. It looks pretty good in there right now. They are patiently waiting with lots of food and fuel.

Postle is moving up to 14K today. That's all I know. I haven't heard from them, but I did get a quick text message saying they were moving today.



Bruce Andrews, one of the best guides ever, in front Mt. Francis. Brucie was killed in a plane crash on May 28th, 2003. He is a legend around here. He had climbed and guided all over the world. He left behind a great friend and wife, Anne-Marrie, a cool son named Tucker who is a sick skateboarder and snowboarder. Brucie also has a fun little girl named Meghan. We all miss Brucie and I know he wishes he was up in the mountains right now climbing and having his wife and kids read all about how much fun he'd be having up there right now.

Cheers Bruce.

On a separate note, the SFS crew climbed two separate routes on Francis. I have not seen their photos yet. I heard they have lots. They had a super good time and wished they were still in the mountains. Seth and one person came up the SW ridge on the left hand syline and Leighan and 2 climbers came up the East Ridge.
