Team 1 remains in a holding pattern at 10,00ft. Heavy snowfall continues below 12,000ft on the mountain. The team was able to get some movement when they retrieved a cache they left at 10,200ft a few days ago. When they returned to camp they dug, and dug, and dug some more. The weather for tomorrow is looking sunny and they are expecting a break from the snow and whiteout conditions. "We look forward to breaking trail up to Camp 2!" - Tad
