Already some difficulty with the new icefall route

Alan Arnette was gracious enough to post an update about the icefall route.  Apparently, the icefall doctors experienced some problems with the ladders.  Please consult his blog for the complete update.  Be sure to look at the enlarged picture so you can see the trouble spot.

The internet must be working pretty well at basecamp.  I read many updates from various climbers.  Thanks to Alan for keeping us all abreast of the situation.  Glad I stayed home and acclimatized in my own bed.  Just another reason why I thank the good folks at Hypoxico and, in particular, Brian Oestrike for helping me with this whole process.  

Expect updates as the roll in.....

Thanks for following.
