Upper West Rib 5/21, Collins

Guide Greg Collins phoned in from the 14,200 camp this evening.

Today they climbed up to 16,800' on the West Buttress Route to acclimatize and that went very well. He said that they have 3" of fresh snow at 14,200' and that they will rest in camp tomorrow. Rest days at 14,200' are well deserved and activities include lots of hydrating, hydrating, hydrating and eating, eating, eating.

After that they will move up to their camp on the Upper West Rib, weather permitting.
