Steve House called last night to give us another update from Nepal. The team has been trekking at altitude for a few days now to help with the acclimatization process.

As Steve mentioned in his first call, two friends from Oregon, Ian and Mark, are also on board. They will be climbing the regular route on Makalu while Steve, Vince and Marko will attempt the West face. Next up, the group will head back to Kathmandu for some logistics and then fly to base camp.
