Camp 3 - 14,200 ft
I just watched a skier come down the hill on the West Buttress route -- just amazing!! It is just starting to snow here at 14,000 ft and we are expecting some poorer weather in the days to come with the heaviest snowfall expected on Wednesday. Three members of our group have decided to pull out and head down as they have not managed to acclimatize well so we are down to 6 people in our team. We are getting ready to climb up to Headwall -- a couple thousand feet into the clouds, a part of which will be on the fixed lines. I am feeling much better today and am acclimatizing well.
Thanks to Andrew George, #9, and Brownie for the messages.

Max, great to see you at the next camp, and acclimitising well. You were off line for a couple of days there (after the "rest day" entry) and were starting to think that you had decided to take a couple more days of rest and just blow it off! But, alas, it was not the case - you were grinding up that hill after all. Keep safe. We're thinking of you. From the the Mingays
