Melis and Joey called in today from 9,700 feet today after they had done their back-carry from 11,200' camp. She said that it had been relatively warm so far until last night. They are all feeling strong and "loving it". They have been doing lots of trail-breaking since they left basecamp. They weren't sure if they were going to make a carry around Windy Corner tomorrow, or take a rest day. They will try to gauge what the weather is doing or about to do and make a decision from there.
Over the last few days we have had lots of groups coming and going. Our first Advanced Mountaineering Course of the season is starting tomorrow, after 2 days of prepping for the course by the two instructors, Greg Collins and Russell Hunter.
This photo is what our gear room looks like during a typical indoor equipment check. It's getting warmer and warmer aropund here though, so soon all of our gear checks will be outside.
