Another day in base camp and another day training for the climbs ahead! While our second wave of climbers trek further up the valley on the way to Everest Base Camp (EBC), our team who has settled into EBC spent another morning training on the technical skills necessary for their climbs on Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse. Expedition guide, Terray Sylvester, checks in with this dispatch from EBC:
Today our team in base camp (5364m/17,598ft) spent another morning reviewing technical skills, ascending and descending fixed lines, as we prepare to move up to Camp 1 (6050m/19,849ft). Meanwhile, our second wave of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse climbers are in Namche Bazaar (3440m/11,290ft)! They had an active rest day today and enjoyed all that Namche has to offer: good food, hot showers. They’ll continue on their way up the Khumbu Valley tomorrow.
All is well here in base camp! We’ll be in touch tomorrow.
