November 16 Check-In
Chris and Geoff checked in on November 16th via satellite phone. The team arrived at base camp to find all of their proposed acclimatization routes out of condition. Despite solar but managed to climb a suitable alternative. Geoff and Chris climbed what they suspect to be a new route (350m, WI4/M3) on the Northeast aspect of peak 5777m.
Tomorrow, the team plans to move to an advanced camp on the Lunag Glacier and attempt a direct line on the North/Northeast face Jobo Lacoultre.
