On their first acclimatization rotation, the team is sleeping at Camp 2 (6533m/21,434ft). They are spending a couple of nights there before descending back to base camp. Here’s Garrett’s recap of the day:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Mount Everest climb. Today we woke up at 5am at Camp 1, had some breakfast, got packed up and then climbed up to Camp 2. We had a beautiful day, the Sun was out and it wasn’t too hot. We made our way around some big cevasses and got up to Camp 2 here about mid-day, had lunch, and now just relaxing and getting ready for dinner and a good night’s rest. Everybody’s doing really well up here and we look forward to a couple nights up at Camp 2 and then we will head back down to base camp. Thanks!
