The Madison Mountaineering mountain cleanup project expedition team continues to wait for a weather window that would allow them to make the move to Annapurna base camp. While they wait, the team has made the most of their time by enjoying good food and rest as they prepare for the climbing and cleaning activities ahead. Climber, Nelly Attar checks in with this dispatch from Nepal:

Hello, this is Nelly! I’m reporting live from Tatopani, today is March 28th.

We’re actually supposed to be on base camp at the moment, but because of weather conditions, we haven’t been able to fly out. So instead, we spent a rest day in Tatopani. We ate, we slept, and we’re getting ready to move tomorrow! So, it’s either a long hike up to Annapurna 1 base camp (4130m/13,549ft), or we’re going to take a chopper if weather conditions permit. Stay tuned for exciting updates! Buh-bye.
