Climbers: Mary Neave (UK), James Neave (UK), Alex Round (UK),  Daniel Hughes (UK), Knut Heggland (Norway), Guy Manning (Cayman Islands), Michael Rieder (Idaho)

Alasdair must have been able to get a digital cell signal, because he was able to email us via his IPhone at 11:03 PST with the following dispatch:

"We had 12" overnight two nights ago, and snow is waist-deep on the Football Field.  We have decided to wait it out one more day.  Chad spent a little time trying to dig out the cook tent" [see attached image]
