We received word from AAI lead guide Quino Gonzalez late Tuesday evening. Team 4 flew onto the mountain yesterday and made it to Camp 1 last night!

Team 4 landed at base camp around 10:30am and quickly made the 5 hour journey to Camp 1. Everyone did really well throughout the day. Team 4 is hoping to move their first cache halfway to Camp 2 on Wednesday, or they will take a rest day if the weather does not cooperate.

Everyone is in good spirits and doing really well. Team 4 is looking forward to a great expedition!
