Mount Logan Team: at Camp 2
The Mount Logan team sent me a SPOT message today that places them at approximately 4000m (13,500 ft) in the King Col, sometimes known as Camp 2. I got a message mid-week that put them at Camp 1 just a few kilometers from Base camp).
The route from here will take them up the headwall through a complicated series of crevasses and seracs to Camp 3. It looks like the few days they spent moving from Base Camp, to Camp 1 and to Camp 2 could have been for acclimatization; it’s common to take time lower on the mountain to adjust to the altitude.
Since the SPOT can’t tell me anything more other than the position and that they are “OK”, I’ll have to wait until they decide to use the SAT phone to update with more details.
