Things are starting to wind up for the summit push! Most of our climbing team will be heading back up to base camp tomorrow from Namche. And as soon as the winds die down up high, preparations for the summit attempt will continue. The next two weeks are what it’s all about!! Here’s Garrett’s audio dispatch from base camp:
Hello, this is Garrett checking in for the Everest team. All’s well here in Everest base camp. Our Sherpa team is up at Camp 2, resting currently, waiting for the winds to die down and they are planning to make a carry up to the South Col on May 12th. Our climbers are all resting down in Namche at the moment. And everyone’s doing okay! So all’s well here in base camp and we’ll check in again soon! Thanks.
