Our Everest team has safely moved up to Camp 2 in the Western Cwm to kick off their summit push! Everest guide Terray Sylvester sends this expedition dispatch via Garmin inReach Mini:
Hello from Camp 2!
Our Everest and Lhotse climbers ascended from base camp to our advanced base camp (aka Camp 2) here at 21,300′ (6500m) yesterday in great weather. We’ll rest here now before climbing to Camp 3 (7230m/23,720ft), where we’ll spend a night before continuing up to Camp 4 (7900m/25,919ft) at the South Col.
The team is feeling good!
We’ll be in touch!
