AMS guide Todd Tumolo and his team made a carry to the top of the fixed lines yesterday. They were planning on moving to high camp today, but the winds on the 16 ridge are preventing them from doing that.
On the lower mountain, where it is warmer, we can often carry and or move in more inclement weather and even whiteouts. We can do this because it is much warmer and the terrain is a lot more moderate. On the upper mountain (above11k) we need to have much better weather to move and carry. The terrain is more technical and the temps are much colder, so we wait for the right days to advance our camps.
Everyone is doing well up there and just waiting on the right conditions to do what they need to do.
