Mount Kenya North Face Update

We were happy to get a sat phone call from guide Mark Ryman today, as everyone has been eagerly waiting to hear of he and David's progress. Yesterday they pushed higher and climbed seven rock pitches of the North Face Standard route, intent on making a cache and scoping out the route some more. They cached some crucial bivouac gear, a few technical items, and an amazing 12 liters of water (nice work guys!).
