Lead guide Tad McCrea left a voicemail last night.

After enjoying a rest day, they are looking to make a cache above the fixed (16,200ft).

The team did a fine job practicing their fixed line movement and running belays for the ridge above the headwall.

They are currently enjoying a good dinner of egg and sausage sandwiches.

Once the cache is placed the team will be in a great position to make a push for High Camp and then to the summit! Stay tuned.
