Day 12 - April 23

Lucille phoned me this morning, but did not leave a voicemail for the blog. As you can see from the Spot track, Lucille proceeded towards Camp 1 at 5,700 meters today, but turned back at about 5,450 meters. Domhnall continued to Camp 1 with their load. Lucille says she was still a little weakened by her gastro bug, and hopes to make it all the way to Camp 1 on the next trip. On the picture above, the dashed line to the circle is my speculation as to the location of Camp 1 based on elevation and topo features. It appears to flatten out right there, so it would be a good place to set up tents. She sounded pretty good over the phone so she is gathering her strength and should do better now as they go along.
