Today, Mountain Hardwear CEO, Joe Vernachio, provide a recap of yesterday’s activities around base camp the plan for today:
Hi, this is Joe Vernachio for the Mountain Hardwear Everest Expedition with Madison Mountaineering. We had an active rest day yesterday where we walked up into the Khumbu Icefall. It was a very cloudy, snowy day. We woke up this morning to bright sunshine, and we are going to do it again today and get some altitude and some acclimatization. And tomorrow (will be) a rest day, then we will probably start our rotation up the mountain. Everybody’s good! We’re here in base camp, just finishing up breakfast, and we are having a GOOD time! We will talk to you soon!
In addition to these expedition dispatches, you can also follow the team as they trek to Everest Base Camp and then make their attempt to summit the world’s highest mountain on:
