Autumn Everest expedition leader, Garrett Madison, report on the exciting progress today:
Exciting news: our sherpa team was able to find the route through the icefall and reached Camp 1! So, the route is open to Camp 1! The other climbers had a great day in base camp, relaxing and doing a little training out in the icefall. Beautiful day here.
Tomorrow we are looking forward to another good weather day and further process on the route and planning for our first rotation up to the high camps.
All’s well here at base camp and we’ll check-in soon. Thanks!
