Our Everest team is settling into base camp life and today hiked up the slopes of Pumori to its camp 1 at 5486m. Guide Terray Sylvester has today’s audio expedition dispatch from Everest base camp:
We continue to have to have great weather here in base camp. Today we had a little bit of snow overnight, a little cloudiness in the morning, but the rest of the day was really brilliant blue skies with very crisp clear views of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse. The team hiked up to camp 1 on Pumori today higher than 18,000ft to acclimatize. It’s part of our continuing preparation for our first rotation up to Camp 1 and Camp 2, which will hopefully start in a few days.
So, we will be in touch.
