Move to camp 2

Move to camp 2 – 9700’ (2900m) distance 3.2 miles – 5.12km. This is a fairly short day. Due to the lowish altitude and relatively small amount of elevation gain most people do a move to camp 2 in one go.

We will still move as a roped team due to the continuing crevasse danger. We also tie in our sleds to the rope to lessen the chance of the sled falling in on us in the event of one of us falling into a crevasse.

Today we should be settled in as a team, getting used to moving together as well as getting more comfortable with pulling sleds. It has been a few years for us since we have done this, but by today we should be feeling comfortable. Despite the putting the majority of the weight in the sleds are packs are still quite heavy. Motrin will help with the aching muscles tonight.
