Update Received: May 23, 2014. 9:59am PST. Yesterday, Team 3 started at Camp 1 in windy, snowy conditions. The team was eager to move up to Camp 2, but due to the white out conditions they were not quite able to get there. Instead they made camp for the night at 10,700', near their previous cache. Today they are planning on finishing the the next few hundred feet to Camp 2.

We lose the clear connection toward the end of the dispatch, but it sounds as if they plan on retrieving their cache after settling into Camp 2.
