Chris Warner, Don Bowie and Bruce Normand of the Shared Summits Team left BC today and proceeded all the way up to Camp 2. This was no walk in the park however, as they were met with heavy snow, fierce 60 MPH winds, and dangerous conditions. It took the team 11 hours to reach their destination in what their BC Manager described as the worst conditions to date.
The team is taking the chance that a weather window will open today as predicted, and that they’ll be in a position to take advantage of it. If everything goes according to plan, they hope to summit on Thursday.
