May 27 Team Moves to Camp 3

Corell calls in to report the team has moved up to Camp 3! Getting to Camp 3 is always an exciting and somewhat pivotal point of the expedition. Many climbers congregate here (there is likely somewhere around 200 people at this camp right now) as they wait for their opportunity to move to High Camp and then make their summit bid. Teams will do their best to spend as little as possible at High Camp. Here you have great views out towards Mount Foraker (Sultana) and above you the fixed lines rise up to the 16 Ridge, named for its elevation of 16,200′ (4937m). This is a fun time for teams to mingle and meet people from all over the world, different walks of life, and often some pretty legendary folks as well.
