Rob Gowler's team and Leighan's Glacier Ninjas have met up at 11,000 feet and are hanging tight, eating well and waiting for better weather. Rob's team had hoped to descend to base camp today but strong winds and snow slowed their progress. They would not have been able to fly off the glacier even if they had made it down to the 7,200 feet base camp. It is currently raining there with occasional gusts up to 30 mph. Being at 11,000 feet is a bit nicer. When the weather clears they will go down and Leighan and team will go up.
