Game time! Our Everest main team is heading up tonight (Nepal time) for their summit rotation! Stay tuned to these dispatches and our Amazon Alexa flash briefing for up to date coverage. Meanwhile, the climbing group of Kenton Cool, Michael Lavelle, are safely down to Camp 2 and descending to base camp tomorrow after their summit success! Here’s Garrett reporting in just before turning in for some rest before the alpine start of 1:00 AM:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Everest team. We are leaving tonight to head up to Camp 2 for our summit rotation! This will be our final trip up the mountain for hopefully a summit here somewhere around May 21st, 22nd, or 23rd depending on the weather and route conditions. Our team is doing great! We had a team meeting today, got everything packed, organized, and we are excited to head up and see what lies ahead on Mount Everest! Fingers crossed for good weather and hopefully a good summit!!
