Danny called Wednesday, June 17th at 3:05 Pacific time with the following dispatch:

“Hi, this is Danny calling from base camp. It’s a beautiful day here today. We call gained some elevation today but Alfred and I turned around via a new route. Right now some of Juan’s family is here keeping us company. Bolivians are incredible people. People often overlook the fact that these people are living at 13,00 feet everyday.

Alasdair, Juan, and Diccon are planning to summit tomorrow and they are currently poised and ready at high camp, right on schedule. Wish them luck. I’ll call you tomorrow.”
