Update Received: May 26, 2014. 10:51pm PST. Team 4 called in with their first dispatch.  After spending one day in Talkeetna, Team 4 was able to fly up to the Kahiltna Glacier on the morning of the 26th. The team headed straight up to Camp 1, forgoing a night at Base Camp in order to stay on schedule.

The plan for the 27th is to climb up the glacier and place a cache of food and supplies at 9,800', then return to Camp 1 for the night.
