We Made it up to High Camp!

PAUL & DENISE MADE IT TO HIGH CAMP!!! Latest news just received from Paul & Denise via satellite phone. Click on the play button to listen:

Taking a breather at the top of the fixed lines. Unclipping and taking a wrong step here earns you a 3,000 vertical foot express ride back to Camp 1:

This was a difficult 8-hour day climbing many steep, fixed rope sections on 45 degree icy slopes. Elevation gain was 3,350 feet and we established our High Camp at approximately 12,350 feet.

If you would like to send a text message to our satellite phone we would love to hear from you. Simply send a short email (less than 160 characters) to the following address: We apologize in advance as we will probably be unable to respond. Cold fingers, fatigue, and altitude-induced dimished brain funtionality may prevent an intelligent response anyhow. Nonetheless we will read your message and reciprocate when we are able.
