The first rotation is off! The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team has departed from their base camp and climbed up to Camp 1 on Annapurna, settling into their tents for the night, prepared to make the move to Camp 2 tomorrow. Good weather today made for pleasant climbing conditions and great views as the team ascended to their first camp. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Camp 1 on Annapurna:

Namaste from Camp 1 on Annapurna 1! This afternoon we enjoyed a beautiful ascent to the relatively low first camp here at just over 5,000m. The weather was perfect. We’re looking forward to our climb to Camp 2 tomorrow. We’ll be in touch then!
