Team Jordan is back at Chinese Base Camp to rest, acclimatize, and prep their gear for the summit push. The team's sherpas are stocking Camp 3 for the last big climb of the mountain, according to Jordan's Facebook page. Still no word as to when the team will make the push, but the north side has experienced bad weather as of late, pushing teams from advanced base camp down to the lower camp.  As soon as the team moves up, we'll let you know.
