With winds dying down this morning, Dupre was able to tackle the glacier. After hearing ice falls all night, he started making his way up and saw large ice blocks peppered across the entire glacier. When it got too steep for skis, he switched to post-holing. He was sinking to his waist, but due to a thick top crust, he wasn't able to plow through. The going was slow, such that he'd have to camp among the ice falls. It was a dead end.
He has relocated his camp further north and will seek out a route up a steeper pitch with a reduced load which should provide a bit more mobility up the mountain. We'll keep you posted via our website and Facebook with the latest information. Upward!
