Lead guide Andrew Yasso called this morning. Team 3 is making their way to High Camp (17,300ft) right now. They have a small weather window and are looking to make their summit attempt on Tuesday! They have about 3 days worth of food in case they need to wait out some weather. Very exciting for his team and as Andrew said "this what we all came here for". Let's wish them all luck and hope we hear good news in the coming day.
