AAI lead guide Andrew Yasso called last night. Team 5 had made it back down to Camp 3 by yesterday evening. They were resting briefly, fueling up, and prepping themselves for the long trek back town to Base Camp.

Due to the encroaching weather, Team 5 had decided to move through the night so they could make it down the mountain faster and hopefully fly off later today or tomorrow (before the weather moves in and prevents them from leaving). We wish them safe travels down the mountain and hope to hear of their safe return to Talketna shortly.
