Photo: Lonnie at Headwall, below fixed lines, 2012.
Despite whiteout conditions Lonnie was able to reach 15.2K from 14.2K. There he left backpack with everything he will need for 17.2K camp and beyond. Because of whiteout he marked his path with wands on ascent, because he had to return to 14.2K camp before making the final push to 17.2K.
As of right now forecast tomorrow is still 50/50 for traveling tomorrow, temperature with windchill is projected to be -45F.
Lonnie is in good spirits and very excited for this stage of the climb.
