The team spent another stormy day nestled into base camp, but enjoyed a good meal, and are looking forward to better weather in the days ahead! Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester, checks in from Manaslu base camp:

Hello! This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Manaslu (8156m/26,759ft) expedition – today is September 25th.

We spent today in base camp (4859m/15,944ft) preparing for our summit push. Then we had dinner, it was pizza, watched a movie, and we’re just heading to bed! Today was another good day. Still stormy – rainy and snowy here in base camp, but it looks like the clouds are going to start to part tomorrow.

We’ll be in touch!
