Today we have a double-shot from Steve House. Apologies for not posting Update 9 sooner. In it Steve share's Marko's assessment of the weather, and he describes the Sierra-style climb that was mentioned in the last update, including the surprise they found at the top of it.
Then, on Sunday, we received another call. The weather was so nice the team packed up and charged K6 West. Give a listen to see how it turned out.
