AAI lead guide Andy Stephen called in earlier today to report on Team 3.

Team 3 is sitting tight, waiting out a storm at Camp 3 (14,000ft). Around 5am, a strong storm rolled in with approximately 40mph winds picking up and continuing into the morning.

Team 3 is still really psyched and doing well. They had a good breakfast of cereal and dried fruit. Throughout the day Team 3 will build up their snow walls and fortify their camp. It appears this storm may stick around through the weekend, so they need to be prepared if it does.

Team 3 is hanging tight for now. Everyone is in really good spirits, playing games, laughing, and having fun together. We are looking forward to hearing from Team 3 again, soon!
