Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Everest and Lhotse team dispatch. Today is May 2nd and tonight we are embarking on second rotation.
Our first wave of climbers is heading up tonight, climbing early tomorrow morning of May 3rd through the Icefall to Camp I and will sleep there the night of May 3rd. Our second wave will depart base camp early on May 4th and climb up to Camp II and join the members who will be sleeping at Camp I. So we’ll all arrive Camp II together on May 4th for our second rotation and spend about three nights there.
Everone’s doing great here on Everest. We’re healthy, we’re enjoying the nice weather, and looking forward to getting up high again and hopefully some good views.
We’ll check in soon, thanks!
If climbing Mount Everest is in your future, please contact our office, we would love to have you climb with us!
