AAI guide Ian Mceleney called in this morning to check-in for Team 3, making sure we were able to hear about their progress.

Team 3 made their way up to Camp 3 (4,320m) last night. It was a tough day for the expedition, but everyone did really well on their journey and worked really hard throughout the day. They set-up camp really quickly yesterday evening and the guides were very proud of their team.

This morning, Team 3 woke-up to some stormy weather, so they plan to take a rest day and wait out some of the weather. Their plan is to build some snow walls around camp to protect from the wind. AAI guide Michael Wachs was making some breakfast sandwiches for the team when we received their call.

We are looking forward to hearing more from Team 3, soon!
