AAI lead guide Andy Stephen called in yesterday evening (5/23) to report on Team 3.

Team 3 headed up the mountain and put in a cache earlier in the day at 14,000ft, a little higher than normal, to save themselves a day of backtracking later on. They had not planned on caching, since the weather was looking questionable, but they never slowed down and were able to make their cache.

AAI guide Ian Mceleney was cooking everyone burritos for dinner and everyone was in really good spirits after a successful day.
