Summit Push – Rest Day at C2

The team getting comfortable with their down suits before the climb to Camp 3 the following day

Our Everest team has extended their rest period at Camp 2 to time their summit attempt for the best-forecasted weather.  Everest guide Terray Sylvester sends this evening’s expedition dispatch via Garmin inReach Mini:

Hello from Camp 2!  All is well.

Our team rested here today, reading, napping and admiring the scenery, including a paraglider(!) who launched from the South Col. Our forecast indicates we’ll have the best summit weather if we rest here one more day before climbing higher. So our plan is now to move to Camp 3 on the 17th.

We’ll be in touch!
