Text Dispatch: Camp 3, 20000ft

One of the hardest days I’ve ever had. A stomach problem has left me drained physically and mentally. It continues to snow heavily. Today I stumbled up here through deep snow and whiteout conditions. Tom has the first chance to summit but I’m not sure if I will have the strength or health. Can’t even see the world now. It’s just rocks, snow, and this storm. Plants and people must be elsewhere.
