The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team has crawled into their tents for the evening in Camp 3 on Annapurna. Today the team moved up from Camp 2 and is eyeing a summit push soon! Tomorrow will be used to rest and prepare for their summit day, with hopes of getting an alpine start late tomorrow evening to set forth towards the summit. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Camp 3 on Annapurna:

Today we moved from Camp 2 to Camp 3 at about 6,500m on the north face of Annapurna 1. The weather was generally excellent, with a clear, sunny morning, a few snow flurries in the afternoon, and then a still, sunny evening as we moved into our tents, ate dinner, and drank many cups of tea. Tomorrow we plan to rest all day, with an eye toward starting our summit push late tomorrow evening. We’ll be in touch.
