Robert called at 2 a.m. cdt and reported that he had reached Camp 4. The climb was difficult and he sounded a bit out of breath but at that altitude anyone would be! He rested for a while and called me again at 8:15 a.m. cdt to tell us that the summit attempt will begin in about an hour. He also said that we should not expect a blog report for at least 12 hours, maybe longer.
Time to pray some more.
Thanks for following along. I will report again as I hear from Robert.
