Spoke with AAI Guide Richard Riquelme via SAT phone this afternoon...

The team made it to Camp 2 yesterday and retrieved their cache below Camp today. They are now enjoying some well earned rest. They plan to cache below Camp 3 tomorrow if everyone is feeling good and will move to Camp 3 after. Weather is looking a little "rowdy" this weekend with some very high winds on the summit but they are supposed to die down by Sunday night. Camp 3 is a good wind protected camp. A lot of high calorie comfort for the group tonight as they try to refuel and rest. More tomorrow. P.S. We were able to pass along your Happy Birthday wishes to Ben!
