Team Blackburn left a dispatch this morning and also called in for a weather update. They spent 9 hour yesterday afternoon and evening making it a mere 1,000 ft up the ridge in waist-head deep snow, and camped in a crevasse at 10,800 ft. Despite the herculean effort required and slow progress, they are cheerful and ready to continue upwards. They plan to move camp higher today and hopefully be within striking distance of the summit for tomorrow or Thursday. Take a listen here:
