Well, it was quite the day.  We hiked up to high camp – about 4 km distance, 800m or approx 3000 feet of elevation.  It is through a heavily crevassed glacier.  We took up food and fuel for the camp which we hope to move to tomorrow – depending on how everyone is doing.  Arrived back at our established camp at 10 pm, after 7.5 hours of climbing.  Ian had soup on and snow walls built around the entire camp.

The peak altitude today was over 12000 feet, a personal best for both Dale and Pat.

Everyone is doing well and the weather has been holding for us, -30 in the shade and at night and warm under the sun.
