Lead guide Chad Cochran and AAI guide Jeremy Devine called in. Team 2 has safely and successfully made it to Camp 3 (14,200ft) also known as 14 Camp or Medical Camp. The team woke up yesterday to beautiful blue skies and packed up to make the big move. It took about 7 hours from Camp 2 (11,200ft) to make it to Camp 3. Everyone did well and they enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, and chicken breasts. The team will take a rest day tomorrow and soon begin to prepare for moving to the upper mountain.
