Day Fifty-three: Final Preparations for Summit Push

The weather window seeming to be materializing, Mario and I spent the day preparing our things for a final try for the summit. We plan tomorrow to head to Camp II, where we are relatively certain my tent, with all of both of our things inside, will be completely buried thanks to all the snow and reports from both the Spanish and Russian expeditions that when they saw it last week, it was almost buried already. After Camp II, we plan to head to our Camp III, again, probably completely buried then either make our summit push from Camp III or if the weather window is long enough, establish a Camp IV then summit from there.
