CNN interview from 19,567 camp one

An epic and long e-mail will be coming soon. We are back in basecamp after 10 days on the mountain. We turned back short of the summit and with an amazing tale. A brief summation during an interview with CNN is below.

We will be resting for a couple of days in basecamp before going back up the mountain and doing the second ascent of the East fork of the East face where it gains the South East ridge and then skiing it,our original descent plan, for it’s first ever ski descent. We are so excited.
 
Man the NE face was steep and fun,but after being trapped in a storm for a many days well…you’ll read about it in the next dispatch. EPIC.
 
Live the dream,
