AAI guide Jeremy Devine called in yesterday (5/22) on day 14 of their expedition.

Team 2 woke up to somewhat clear skies with encroaching clouds moving toward their camp during breakfast. They packed up some day-gear and headed toward the fixed lines to work on their acclimatization. They made it a little over 1,000ft above Camp 3 before turning back toward camp due to the blustery winds and blowing snow. Everyone had a good time and was glad to get out and stretch their legs a bit. 

Hopefully the weather will break soon and allow Team 2 to make their way up to the fixed lines sometime soon. We're looking forward to another update from Team 2 soon!
