Update Received: May 29, 2014. 10:58am PST. Calling in from 14,200'. Yesterday, Team 3 was able to place a cache at 16,200'. They experienced some high wind conditions while on the Fixed Lines which were also abnormally icy this year. Today the sun was shining on Camp 3, but the winds were roaring through the upper ridges, sounding like a freight train. The weather forecast is in a holding pattern through the 30th and possibly the 31st.
As soon the weather permits, the team will be ready to move up to 17K' since they have already placed their cache up high.
