Lead guide Andy Stephen called in this morning.

Team 3 successfully placed their cache above the fixed lines (16,200ft). They didn't spend much time above the head wall as it was quite windy but with the cache placed the team is in a good position to make a summit attempt in the next few days.

Unfortunately, as Ian and Andy passed the phone around the group we could only hear a few people's voices due to a poor connection.

Hopefully we get a better signal so that friends and family can hear everyone's brief message.
