“Hi This is Chantel for Team 7. We’re calling from Camp 1. We left Base Camp at about 4 am this morning and had really good travel conditions on the lower glacier. It got really cold! We’re planning to do a single carry tomorrow. Denis would like to tell his wife and kids ‘Hello and I love you’. Ok, that’s it for now. I hope you’re all doing well and I’ll call later.”
