Update 3:45 pm PST:
Seth Waterfall radioed in after the team made the oxygen bottle switch at the Balcony.  They are are well past that point and working their way to the South Summit.  A bit of traffic but not too bad.  Kaji and Tshering are right there with them and report not much wind and a beautiful morning is shaping up.  Rough estimate of between one and three hours to top of the South Summit.  All is going very well.
