From AAI Guide Richard Riquelme...

"Good morning to you, afternoon for us. Today (Jan 6, 2017) it's a quarter to 1pm. We made it to basecamp at 13,780 feet. Had a long hike in yesterday. Couple folks feeling the altitude here at nearly 14,000ft but they have fully recovered. Went through doctor check in and all is well.
Getting food ready for cache. We'll start doing food sorting after that for the rest of the expedition.
Weather's good down below. This morning there was a lenticular, which didn't look fun to be in, high on the mountain. Good weather on the way."
