5/11, Joey Mcbrayer

AMS guide Joey Mcbrayer called in from their fortress at high camp.  They had already built big burley snow block walls to protect them from the wind should it start to blow.  They were about to start dinner around 7:45PM or so.  The 5/11 team made it up to high camp (with heavy back packs and all) in 7 hours.  That is a very good time.  The move from 14K to 17K is one of the hardest days of the expedition.  Some say it is just as hard as summit day.  More than likely they will take a rest day tomorrow and dry everything out and prepare for a summit attempt the following day (friday), weather permitting.
