Today we moved to our High Camp Colera at 6000 m (19,800 ft) to get in position for our summit bid. The climb was much more difficult than two days ago when we were carrying heavier loads. We faced a strong gale force wind blowing at an estimated 65 mph throughout the climb and almost got blown off the mountain a few times.
Once we got to camp, we could barely setup one tent for the three of us. We quickly jumped in and later cooked our dinner of Ramen noodles in the tent’s vestibule. We did not leave the tent as it’s very cold and windy outside. The tent continues to rattle and the wind outside sounds like a jet engine. It’s looking less and less that we’ll be going for the summit tomorrow.
