Patalsu 3 Day Winter Camping. 3rd Edition!

So, our third attempt at summiting Mt Patalsu! November 27 to 29.

Late November, early December is apparently a good time to head up to Manali and try Patalsu, 14,500 ft. We’ve done this twice before, and not summited, once because we tried to do a single day and that was too aggressive, and the second time we got weathered off the mountain.

So, this time we’re going to take three full days, winter camping for two nights so that we have a great shot at it. From our last trip, see pictures, we have a rough idea of where to pitch tents midway, so the plan is to get to Manali and try and knock off at least 2,000 feet of vertical the first day, pitch, do another 2,000 the next day and pitch, and then the remaining 2,000 on summit day and come all the way back.
