Mt. Everest: The Team Ready for Camp 3 Rotation

Elevation: 17,575'

What a night to take in last evening!  We had perfect conditions: clear, calm, and almost a full moon.  It was a bit chilly, but that is what our puffy coats and pants are for.  After so much unsettled weather, it was so peaceful you could almost think we were in the most tranquil environment on earth!  Of course, the hanging glaciers and thousands of feet of vertical rock overhead remind us that “tranquil” is all relative in this neck of the ice.

The team was up early in the AM and sent up gear for the community effort to fix ropes to Camp 3.  Our group plans on some training en route up to Camp 3 as well.  We have two Sherpa at Camp 2 right now who are working hard and preparing to welcome the climbers to Advanced Base Camp in a couple of days.

The team continues to take care and plans for the long haul ahead.

NIce swing Tuck. Bummed that I wasn’t able to play a few rounds with you at Base Camp this year but I saw the clubs outside the com tent and took a few practice swings. My duct tape balls couldn’t compete with whiffle balls. Safe travels to Camp 3.

Your reports are uniquely super! Who is your writer? I’m in the movie business and always expect a highly paid ghost writer behind every writer as good as you and your partners.
Warm regards,
Wolf
