From leader Scott Kress:
It now January 8 and we have been pinned down at high camp for 4 days. It is very miserable outside the tent. The temperature is about -26c with a 20 knot wind making the windchill -46c. Too cold to go out for long. We are consuming small amounts of food and water to conserve our supplies (we don’t know how much longer the storm will last as it has already been here 7 days) and do that we do not need to venture outside to the bathroom very frequently. The forecast shows a slight improvement for tomorrow so if it looks manageable we will try for the summit. Wish us luck.
