After a day off at Camp 2 to acclimatize to the altitude (you have to give your body time to generate more red blood cells to better absorb the limited oxygen out of the air) we were ready for our summit attempt! | Dinner at 4pm. Set out gear at 5pm. In bed at 6pm. Awake at 10pm. Ready to climb by 11pm. |

Spencer (14, Ontario), Simon (17, B.C.) and Keir (14, B.C.).
They won’t get back to camp until sometime the next afternoon but for now…time to rock!
