From AAI guide Tad McCrea...

Hello everyone. Reporting that we successfully made it to Camp 3 (19,600ft/5,970m) also known as White Rocks camp today! The views up here are amazing.

Due to our accelerated schedule with the weather deteriorating and our summit window getting significantly smaller, we had to carry some heavy loads up to camp. It's been snowing most of the day with not much accumulation. Fortunate, there has been no wind.

Our plan is to make a summit attempt tomorrow! Wish us luck and we hopefully be sending in a summit dispatch tomorrow.
