The beautiful weather continues for the rest days in Everest base camp. Everest guide Terray Sylvester calls in today’s expedition dispatch:
Today we had another rest day in base camp – really warm, beautiful weather. The good weather just continues. It looks like it will be another few days before we move up on our second rotation. We’re just giving our Sherpa teams time to move oxygen and other supplies up to the South Col because the fixed lines have now been fixed all the way to Camp 4 (7900m/25,919ft on the South Col).
So, everything is well. Tomorrow we’ll probably do a little more training in the ice pinnacles near base camp or maybe some ice climbing or maybe head out for a hike above base camp.
All’s good here, we’ll be in touch!
