The Madison Mountaineering team stayed put in Camp 1 today, doing a hike in the Western Cwm to continue their acclimatization. Snow was a welcome sight on the mountain today and should improve climbing conditions. Expedition leader, Garrett Madison checks in with this dispatch from Camp 1:

All good here in C1 (6050m/19,849ft), went for an acclimatization hike today. Finally getting some snow as well! Much needed to cover the icy conditions.
