Second Rotation

Sunset on Everest Base Camp

In just a few hours, the Everest team will be starting their second rotation up the mountain to continue the acclimatization process.  Just before heading to bed, expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provided this update:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Mount Everest climbing team.  Tonight we are going to head out from base camp around 2am and climb up through the Khumbu Icefall and then the Western Cwm to Camp 2!  Our plan is to get up to Camp 2 and spend a few nights up there.  Hopefully climb up the Lhotse face and touch Camp 3 (7230m/23,720ft), as well.  It looks like a little snow in the forecast, but not too much, so we are excited for a late night departure and to see what the mountain brings!  We’ll check in soon.  Thanks.
