AAI guide Jeremy Devine called in to report on Team 2. Today (5/18) was a rest day for the team. After a long, hard push to reach Camp 3, they took advantage of the weather to build some good snow walls around their camp to protect from the high winds they could get in the future.

Team 2 ate a lot of good food, including a dinner of jumbalaya with chicken sausage that everyone enjoyed before going to bed at a good hour. The plan for tomorrow (5/19) is to retrieve their cache from Windy Corner (13,400ft) and bring it up to Camp 3.

Everyone is doing really well and we look forward to another update from Team 2 tomorrow!
