Brandon and Kristine called to check in at 11:30pm Antarctica time last night. The climb from Base Camp to Low Camp at 9,500 feet took about 4 hours with sleds. It got surprisingly hot about half way into the climb, but was once again very cold by the time they made it to camp. Unfortunately, the weather service is calling for high winds today so they are planning on staying at Low Camp for the day. They may go out for a quick hike during the day, but they expect to spend most of their time in the tents. On Sunday they will push up to High Camp with a possible summit run on Monday.
They thank everyone for the text messages (yes, they have been receiving them), but wanted to remind everyone that they can’t respond without being charged a small fortune.
