Lead guide Paul Ivaska called in this morning. Very sorry for the delay in dispatches for Team 4. The team was delayed a few days flying into Base Camp and there have been some SAT phone issues in getting calls to AAI. But those have been resolved and they will be checking in daily from here on out. Paul called to report that the team has made it to Camp 1 (7,800ft) and are looking to put in a cache around 10,000ft below Camp 2 today. Everyone is doing well and finished a delicious dinner. The weather in the Range is improving after a rocky May.
