From AAI lead guide Tad McCrea:

Today was the teams first rest day. We started the day with our medical check-up at the rangers headquarters in base camp. All of us appear to be in good health, and we will continue up the mountain as planned. Tomorrow morning we will carry some equipment and food up the mountain to Camp 1 (16,400ft) where we will select a campsite and make a cache before returning to BC (14,000ft). The mountain is still quite cold and snowy so it will be a good test for the rest of our climb, and help to prepare us for the elements.
