The Everest team at EBC is keeping themselves busy during the day with hikes and at night with dinner parties! Garrett Madison, expedition leader, provides the details:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Autumn Mount Everest Expedition. Today is September 27th and today myself and Kristin went for a hike up to Prayer Flag Point above base camp. A snowy day this afternoon, not too snowy this morning, had some sunshine.
Yesterday evening we had the Polish team over to our base camp for dinner. They are a very warm and pleasant group of guys. Andrezj is trying to ski down Mount Everest this year. If you haven’t seen his video skiing down K2, it’s worth checking out on YouTube.
Tonight we’re planning on having dinner over at their camp with Andrezj and his team. Easy couple of days here in base camp, hoping for some sunshine, and the serac to come down tomorrow.
We’ll check-in soon. Thanks!
