Andrew Yasso called June 21st at 12:57pm PST with the following dispatch: Hey AAI it' is 4 minutes to midnight and i"m standing in the middle of a fantastic cook tent. We've got a beautiful camp set up here at 14,200. We arrived in camp at approximately 7pm and there's lots of deep snow so we got right to work building a camp. We had an amazing day today, long, but beautiful and hot. There's an awesome sunset tonight Foraker and Hunter are in plain view. 

We are here with Genie (spelling?), Steve, Brian, Jennifer, Paul, Geoff, Selina, Mary, and myself. Paul and David Chambers stayed back at 11 camp because,unfortunately, David had major blisters that kept him from continuing up. So ,we are having an amazing mac and chesse dinner in his honor tonight. Turns out he thinks Cheese is really bad for you so we just saved it all until now I guess. We definitely wish him well. He should be traveling out with Team 6 and we'll be waiting for Paul to rejoin us tomorrow. The plan for tonight is to go to bed.
