A correction to yesterday's post regarding Holmgren's 5/10 Expedition. Today they did a carry up to Windy Corner (13,200) and then descended back to the 11K camp. This is common practice which allow the team to move some of their gear up and then sleep at a lower elevation. Weather and snow pack dependent, they will move camp up to 14K tomorrow.
Here's some photos from last season (2012) of 14K camp...
