7/7/11 - 9:00 AM Update

Rob Gowler 6/27 just phoned in to say they are at the 14,200 foot camp. They are going to cache gear at 16,800 today and come back down to sleep at 14,200.

He said that Vernovage's IMG/AMS 6/22 and Wagner's 6/20 teams left for the summit at 8:30 AM. Rob said it was a beautiful day up there today.

Here are some photos taken on past AMS expeditions:
14,200 foot camp with Foraker (17,400ft) in view.

AMS climbers practicing clipping in and out of a fixed line before heading up to the 16,200 ridge. You can see the route, with climbers, in the background.

Just above the 14,200 foot camp.
