Blue skies made for a great day of climbing up to Camp 2 on Annapurna for the Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team! The team took in great views all around of Annapurna 1’s North Face and the surrounding area. With more good weather in the forecast, the team plans to move up to Camp 3 tomorrow, which positions them to make a summit push! Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Camp 2 on Annapurna:

This morning we moved to Camp 2 under cloudless skies with excellent views of Annapurna 1’s North Face and the dramatic glaciated terrain of the surrounding cirque. For the past several days, daily convective buildup has brought afternoon snow showers, but we’re expecting that pattern to taper off in the days to come. We’re expecting summit winds to die down, as well. Given all of that, we’re hoping for good climbing conditions as we move to Camp 3 tomorrow, then prepare for our summit push! The team is in great shape. We’ll be in touch!
