AAI lead guide Andrew Yasso called in this evening to report on Team 5 up at Camp 3 (14,200ft) on Denali.

The team used today to back-carry down the mountain and picked up their cache from 13,700ft, and to fortify their camp. They also had some excellent food throughout the day, including a "Thanksgiving replica" dinner.

Tomorrow (Thursday) they plan to practice on the fixed-lines in preparation for hopefully making their cache on Friday. We're looking forward to hearing more from Team 5 tomorrow!

Rob! Got your message - hope you got mine! Technology failed us. All's well at home. Sending lots of love and thoughts of warm foxes!
