Fine Dining in Base Camp!

Sunrise over Manaslu Base Camp (📸: Terray Sylvester)

The team spent today resting in base camp and has identified their weather window in which they intend to go for the summit! Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester, checks in from Manaslu base camp:

Hello! This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Manaslu (8156m/26,759ft) expedition – it’s September 24th.

Today we had another rest day in base camp (4859m/15,944ft) while we wait for our summit window, which looks like we’ll depart from base camp in just a few days! We’re just about to have dinner – it’ll be chicken sizzlers and then watch a movie.

So all is well here in base camp! We’ll be in touch tomorrow.
