Holding Pattern at EBC

Mountain Hardwear departing EBC for KTM

Autumn Everest expedition leader, Garrett Madison, called in from base camp with today’s dispatch:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in the for Madison Mountaineering Everest Expedition Autumn season.  Today is September 23rd.


Today our climbers, Joe and Tim, flew out from base camp to Kathmandu as the Mountain Hardwear team has concluded their Everest expedition.  And our film crew, Jon, Jess, and François from Louder Than 11 also flew from base camp down to Kathmandu.


Everybody’s doing well.  Myself, Kristin, and Zac are here at Everest Base Camp and we’re just in a holding pattern right now – it’s snowing and we’re enjoying base camp.  We went for a hike today up to Prayer Flag Point behind base camp.


And we are looking forward to some improving weather, hopefully, tomorrow.  So, all’s well here in base camp!
