Mark Tucker reporting from Basecamp.

4:15 am - On the move!

Woke up to a blanket of white.

A few inches of fresh snow last night but not snowing now, and brightness starting to shine on the upper reaches of surrounding mountains. The team had a smooth departure from base camp minutes ago. All members were looking good and in high spirits (most took a shower yesterday so even their fragrance was not so bad ) Just a couple other headlamps in the icefall this morning, so no traffic jams for our boys. YEE HA!!
