Hey Andrew, Tina & Team 2 ~
Great report and awesome progress! Know you had some challenging weather up there earlier, so glad to hear the window's open now.

Look forward to you next report! Proud of you Tina! You all sound great! Carry on!

Carol, David, Michael & T2,

It's nice to arrive at camp with most of the hard work out of the way. Now everyone can get some rest and prepare for the next step. The carry up to 16k is not so bad but get yourselves psyched up for the move to high camp. It is challenging but also offers some of the most spectacular views of the trip.

Looks like you have a fairly long weather window of clear skies so good luck to everyone!
