They had sunny skies for their climb up the fixed lines, along the spectaular 16,200' ridge and into high camp yesterday. The team is taking a well deserved rest day today.
Below are some photos of past AMS climbers covering the terrain that they covered yesterday.

|This is the amazing view from the 17,200' high camp. Walking over to this this view area is well earned reward and it's great place for the evening hot drink.|
