Word from 5/16 TNT

Guide Todd Passey phoned in late Wednesday night. They are at the 14,200 foot camp. They will rest today. In the next day or two they will carry their extra food and equipment to the top of the fixed lines (16,200'), returning to sleep at 14K. When weather and conditions permit they will make a move to high camp (17,200). All are very well.



Here's a team practicing fixed line ascent
(clipping in and out of the rope) before heading up
the fixed line to 16,200 feet. You can see the headwall in the background.

can be seen in the middle right of this photo.
