Dispatches

The team is back at base camp after completing the second rotation.  The winds up at Camp 2 provided a perfect training environment for conditions that could be encountered when the team is high on the summit ridge.  Here’s Garrett from base camp this morning:

Hello!  This is Garrett with the Everest climbing team.  We’re back down in base camp today.  We all came down from Camp 2 this morning through the Khumbu Icefall.  Everybody’s doing great.  We had a fun four nights up at Camp 2.  It was pretty windy and we got to climb up on the Lhotse face in some high winds as well.  Which is great preparation for us leading up to our summit rotation where we will be up on the summit ridge of Everest hopefully in a few week’s time.  You never know what to expect up there.  So it was a good rotation, challenging, but everyone did really well.  Happy to be down.  Thanks!
