The 6/25 expedtion led by Rob Gowler, Curtis Green and Simon Frez-Albrecht, is doing well. Last night they moved to 11,000' camp in 6 hours and they stopped to pick up their cached food and fuel along the way, they are feeling strong and moving very well. They have had some snow and light winds and they report that traveling conditions are good. They look forward to moving higher and a working well as a team.
