High winds above Camp 2 – Haytham

Currently the winds above Camp 2 are too strong for us to attempt our plans for caching at Windy Corner. We are currently hydrating and relaxing in the comfort of Camp 2.

at 9,800 ft

Some words from Haytham:

6 May 2017, 11:30 am Alaska, Camp 2, 11,200 ft.

It’s a beautiful sunny day outside and we were hoping to be able to move to 14,000 ft to make a cache but unfortunately for the moment it is too windy. The route is very exposed with a very steep traverse which is dangerous to do in high winds. We still have our fingers crossed that the wind will die down but if not we’ll be staying put for the day. Rest and acclimatisation should never be underestimated up here.

We have managed to speak to everyone on the phone except for you Chach. We wanted to let you know that we love you and are thinking about you up here.

Love to all,

Photo was taken yesterday while collecting our cache from 9,800 ft.
