Guides: Richard Riquelme and Mary Harlan
Climbers: Claire Morrissey (London, UK), Stephen Baldock (Washington State), and Johnna Haskel (Maine)
Richard called at 7:30 pm on May 14th with this dispatch:
"Hi! This is Richard calling on behalf of Team 2, just checking in! Today we had a decent day carrying our cache from 9,700 feet. Right now, we’re enjoying a nice of the view of the valley, but it looks like the clouds are going to roll in soon. The team is doing very well – still going strong! Tomorrow we will do a cache around “Windy Corner”, stashing things around 17,200 feet. The group sends a collective message to all our friends and families: Hello, everyone! We’re doing really well up here and everyone is still strong. We miss you! Wish us well!"
