Lead guide Andy Steven checked in this morning letting us know that the team was able to get their cache in at 10,000ft yesterday. They experienced low visibility but Andy said the temperature was great for climbing. Everyone is doing well and they were able to make a successful push to Camp 2 at 11,200ft with clear skies. The weather was clear at Camp 2 giving everyone beautiful views which helped boost morale. The team is excited to have a relatively relaxing day back carrying their cache and sleeping as much as possible. The team is "slamming" some pasta for dinner...and the meal is getting rave reviews.
