The Everest team continues to fill their initial time at base camp with technical skills training. Here’s guide Terray Sylvester with today’s audio expedition dispatch from Everest base camp:
Today we spent another morning praticing our technical skills on the ice spires right beside base camp – more rappelling and ascending, traversing on fixed lines, plus ladder practice. The whole course was a little bit steeper. Yet again we had really beautiful weather.
So, tonight we’ll probably watch “The Spy Who Loved Me“, the 1977 Roger Moore/James Bond film and get to bed.
Tomorrow we’re looking forward to our puja ceremony!
Okay, we’ll be in touch.
In addition to these expedition dispatches, you can also follow our teams as they make their attempts on the world’s most formidable mountains on:
