Cleanup efforts in higher camps

The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team awoke to more beautiful weather today in Camp 1! Emerging out of their tents, the team took in the views and sunshine before collecting trash in Camp 1, packing up, and making the move to Camp 2. With camp set up, the team has crawled into their sleeping bags for the night and looks forward to another great day tomorrow. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Camp 2 on Annapurna:

Another spectacular day on the north side of Annapurna. We woke to sunny skies and spent the morning picking up trash on the rocky terrain around Camp 1. We then made the relatively short ascent to Camp 2 at just over 5,500m, chopped out our tent platforms and settled in. We plan to stay here tonight and perhaps tomorrow night to maximize our time above base camp, weather permitting. We’ll be in touch!
