At the Balcony--moving up as a group

Just received a text from Andrew at EBC that our group of 4 was at the Balcony and moving up together.  Looking at the live tracking data, they clearly spent some time there.  They could have been resting (very likely), maybe changing O2 tanks.

Andrew also just told us that it didn't appear to be that crowded and that the team was moving well.  They (at EBC) are estimating a 7:30 summit, which would be a bit before 10 here on the East Coast.  My handy-dandy spreadsheet has it a couple of hours later--but this could be impacted by a relatively long rest at the Balcony.  We'll know more in the next 20-30 minutes.

The good news is weather does not appear to be a problem at this point.....

Here is the path up from the Balcony:
