Lucky for us, the weather has been absolutely beautiful. Windy corner lived up to its name a little bit today and people were a little chilled. Overall we're psyched to be get our cache in and are looking forward to a big dinner and some dessert. We've got a jello pie, vanilla pudding thing; it's gonna' be awesome. Right now we're all just sitting around snacking and getting excited to get to 14,200 feet tomorrow. Thank you for all the messages you left and we hope you are getting ours. We'll talk to you soon.

Tim and Dan - hope the sleds didn't roll too much on Windy Corner. Now you can forget about them for a while. Good luck on the headwall and watch your step on the Buttress! You're over halfway up! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
