Charlotte checked in after a great day climbing to the summit of Peak Nairandal. 100% on top with a perfect weather day. The climb of Peak Nairandal (13,900 ft) starts off quite mellow with glacier travel before taking a right hand turn and heading up steeper slopes. Once on the steep slopes, the team navigates around, and over the crevasses before hugging the rocks to the summit. It is a great climb, and the team’s first opportunity to see Russia, China and Mongolia, all at the same time!
The team is doing well and Charlotte said they are excited to head up Mount Khuiten in the morning. Charlotte also reported that it was a bit drier this year and the navigation of crevasses was a bit more challenging, but all within reason. From High Camp, they can see the route on Khuiten and it looks good.
The weather is continuing to hold for the team in Mongolia. We will be looking forward to hearing good news shortly from the summit of Mount Khuiten.
