Ascent Trip ReportTeam of 3. for first couple of days I was sick and could not sleep due to altitude at base camp. Finally on day 3 we started and Chris stepped in a puddle of ice water and got it down his boot so he turned back. Isaac and I got to the base of the glacier at 16K before altitude made him ill and we had to turn back.
