AAI lead guide Paul Ivaska called this evening from Camp 3. Team 6 went over the fixed lines today and checked out the Edge of the World.

Their plan for tomorrow (Friday) is to make a cache above the fixed lines at 16,000ft then return to Camp 3 and wait for a weather window to allow them to move up to High Camp and summit. There is en expected weather system moving in for the weekend but we're hoping it doesn't last long.

Everyone is doing really well and we're looking forward to hearing from Team 6 again soon.
