The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team made the decision to drop down to Camp 1 where they’ll continue their acclimatization efforts for the night. Tomorrow, they plan to return back to the comforts of their base camp for more clean-up efforts before setting their sights on the next rotation up the  mountain. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Camp 1 on Annapurna:

Hello from Camp 1. With snow inbound and some avalanche hazard at Camp 2, we decided to spend the last night of our rotation back here at Camp 1, where we should still see some acclimatization benefit since Camp 2 is only a few hundred meters higher. After a peaceful afternoon snowstorm, we’re settling in for the night and looking forward to returning to BC tomorrow.
