14,200' Camp

After a second night at 16,200' on the West Rib we moved down to 14,200' because the weather forecast was calling for a storm to move in, and the 14,200' camp is much more sheltered than the camp on the West Rib. (We were able to access the weather forecast by satellite phone.)

It's just as well we descended, because Norm was having trouble with the altitude at 16,200' and was starting to exhibit some symptoms of HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema).
