Kurt Wedberg just checked in and said the team is all settled in at Camp 2 (18040′) today and are still on schedule to summit on Monday the 19th! He says that everyone is feeling strong and healthy. “Our plan is to carry to Camp 3 tomorrow, move to Camp 3 @19500′ on the 18th, summit on the 19th.”
Apparently, the views from Camp 2 are spectacular (pictures later!) and they are all feeling very thankful to be up there!
If you love the play-by-play, here are the inReach updates for the week:
