AAI lead guide Chad Cochran called in this morning to give us an update on Team 2.

Due to the weather event they currently experiencing - which is expected to last for the next few days - bringing in strong winds, snow flurries, and poor visibility, Team 2 has made the decision to begin making their way off the mountain. They in the process of creating a plan to safely travel down the mountain to Base Camp, where they can be flown off the glacier.

These are unfortunate circumstances, but Team 2 is staying positive and looking forward to making their way back to civilization. We are looking forward to hearing an update from them soon.
