Great Weather Continues

The Everest team continues to fill their initial time at base camp with technical skills training.  Here’s guide Terray Sylvester with today’s audio expedition dispatch from Everest base camp:

Hello!  This is Terray calling in for the 2022 Madison Mountaineering Mount Everest expedition!  It’s April 16th.

Today we spent another morning praticing our technical skills on the ice spires right beside base camp – more rappelling and ascending, traversing on fixed lines, plus ladder practice.  The whole course was a little bit steeper.  Yet again we had really beautiful weather.

So, tonight we’ll probably watch “The Spy Who Loved Me“, the 1977 Roger Moore/James Bond film and get to bed.

Tomorrow we’re looking forward to our puja ceremony!

Okay, we’ll be in touch.
