Our Everest team made the move up to Camp 3 on the Lhotse face today and looks to be in position for a summit attempt on May 22nd. The weather is looking good and the team is feeling strong and healthy. Garrett Madison, expedition leader, provides this update:
Helllo, this is Garrett calling in for the Everest climbing team. Today we left Camp 2 at 5:00 AM and climbed up the Lhotse face to Camp 3. We made it to Camp 3 by about 9:30 AM. Everyone did great! We set up our tents, moved into camp, had some ramen noddles, and then relaxed before dinner. Our plan is to move up to Camp 4 tomorrow. The weather’s looking really good right now. Everybody is doing great – feeling healthly and strong and enjoying the good weather and nice views from up here at Camp 3. We’ll check in soon. Thanks!
