AAI lead guide Chad Cochran called in for Team 2 on Saturday, May 21st, on day 13 of their expedition.

The wind subsided a little bit Saturday, allowing Team 2 to get out of their tents and work on their skills and check out all their fresh snow. Team 2 practiced the fixed lines and got prepared for the future possibility of putting a cache higher up the mountain or trying to get acclimatized.

Team 2 is in good spirits and is really excited about hopefully moving up the mountain soon. We wish them good weather in the near future so they can make their way toward the summit!
