All of our teams are doing well, they are waiting to move higher.
The AMS 6/23 Expedition led by guide Melis Coady and our 6/24 Expedition led by guide Josh Hoeschen are at 7,800' (camp 1). Over 3 feet (1 meter) of snow has fallen on them in the last 24 hours. They are doing lots of shoveling! they have plenty of food, fuel and shelter. They are keeping warm and are in good spirits and health. They are waiting for the weather to improve before they make their move (and break a new trail through this deep snow) higher on the mountain.

Noah Ronczkowski 6/22 Expedition are at 11,200' Camp. They received over a meter of snow as well. They are shoveling out their camp and waiting for the weather to improve and snow pack to stabilize. Winds are light with stronger gusts coming from the west. Noah reports that all are in very good moods and are doing well awaiting better climbing conditions.
