Mustagh Ata Expedition Runs Into High Winds and New Snow

Hey folks, Casey here. We woke up at 3:30 this morn­ing to high winds and about 25 cm. of new snow! With first light we saw a huge lentic­u­lar on the sum­mit-so, not want­i­ng to get blown off the moun­tain we have decid­ed to head down to base camp after mak­ing it to a bit more than 7,100 meters on the moun­tain. We should be safe­ly down to base camp soon.
