Elevation: 19,600'

We made the big trek to Camp 3 today! It’s not actually that far, about three hours of walking, but there aren’t too many O’s at 19,000 feet, and we had a pretty decent wind gusting at us from all directions. Needless to say, we are happy to be in our tents in camp, and pumped for the summit push tomorrow morning. We’ll see how much sleep we can get in the thin air up here first, and hopefully we’ll give a call from the summit tomorrow afternoon.
