Outside Magazine

Team Jordan plans to carry their gear up to the high camps tomorrow, according to the team's Facebook page. Along the way, they hope to reach the 8,000 meter mark, which will be a new record for the team.
We've also been blessed with a new phlog (above), after days of excruciating silence. We'll be following the team's progress all weekend, and so can you - with this handy interactive map.
