Practice Makes Perfect
Our Everest team members are sharpening their technical skills on the ice. 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 Friday, April 15th.
Today our team of climbers ventured out on to the pinnacles of ice right next to base camp here on the Khumbu Glacier and we practiced fixed-line technique, traversing on fixed lines, ascending/descending. That’s one of the most fun things we do here in base camp. It’s just like a playground out there on the glacier.
So, everyone did great, it was beautiful weather, and most likely we will do more practice tomorrow. Tonight we are going to finish “Interstellar” (movie) and we’re looking forward to another great dinner here in the dining tent.
So, we will be in touch.
