Mt. Everest:  Summit Bid Begins

Elevation: 23,750'

Well, I think we can say the 2011 RMI Everest Summit push has begun. 

Dave, Linden, Kaji, Dawa, and Tshering left Camp 2 early this morning under great climbing conditions.  They have all passed through Camp 3 and are
making good time toward the South Col.  Dave and Linden stopped at Camp 3 and strapped on bottles of oxygen while the Sherpa opt not to use O2 at this point.  They sure are amazing climbers.

All is good up here.  We will keep you posted.

Thnx for the update Tuck. I didn’t get to meet you this season—was on the Island Peak leg with Linden & crew when you rolled into base camp.
Got caught up tonite on all the blog entries. Its 11:45pm PST, Thurs 5/19 my time. I won’t be able to get to sleep now…will be thinking of the boys up high & sending good karma their way.
Namaste & Dzum Dzum!
