Tork's at 14K

Tom called in from 14K. They made it up to 14 in 8 hours. He said everyone is doing very well and is incredibly strong. They were the only group to move up today. Tom said it was a tough day, but everyone did good. They were eating hot soup and dinner when I talked to him. Kirsten, Olivier and Greg Runyan were waiting for them when they rolled in, I could here Kremer in the background. She had water ready to drink and hot water for tea and cocoa. They'll call when they have more of an update.

Tom Egan, Dan Corn, Brian Skean and Merle are still waiting to fly into basecamp. They have been cranking out classes here in town getting ready to head in. Today they were doing crevasse rescue and glacier travel training so they will be ready to hit the ground running, so to speak when they do get in.

That's all for now.
