Update Received: June 24, 2014. 11:34pm PST.  Team 6 called in with a very patchy dispatch, which is not unusual when calling from 17K'. We deciphered that half the team made it to the summit on Tuesday the 24th and the other half is going to attempt on Wednesday the 25th. We have not received the names of the team members that made it, but we will update this information as soon as we get it.

We believe the reason for only half the group going up was that some team members needed an additional day to acclimatize and those that were ready took advantage of Tuesday's weather window.
