AAI guide Ian Mceleny called in earlier today from Camp 2 (11,200ft/ 3,400m)!

Team 3 woke up yesterday (5/19) at Camp 1, working on the skills they will use higher up the mountain. They had a great lunch with fresh fruits and vegetables. After lunch, the team packed up their gear and made a strong push for Camp 2, arriving successfully yesterday evening. 

Team 3 is resting up today after the long push to Camp 2, with the potential for retrieving their cache later today or tomorrow. Everyone is working really well together and we're looking forward to hearing from them again, soon!
