Mustagh Ata Expedition Camp 3 Dispatch

Hello everyone. This is Casey Henley calling in from Camp 3 at 22,370' on Mustagh Ata. We hope all is well with everyone at home. Jack and Susan are doing well. We had a bit of a crazy weather day for our move up from Camp 2. It was beautiful weather when we left Camp 2. This was replaced by whiteout conditions preceding a scary electrical storm, more whiteout, then what felt like 100 degree weather, more whiteout, and more 100 degree weather. We are snuggled in now. It took us a while to get here but we are settled in and making hot drinks to re-hydrate and a good meal before we start our summit push tomorrow morning. We'll be waking up around 3:30 a.m. and hopefully hitting the road between 6 and 7 a.m. That's it for now. I'll phone in a summit update hopefully tomorrow.
