Mt. Everest:  The Team Preps for Next Rotation

It’s a beautiful day here at Everest Bascamp (EBC)!  By that I mean its not snowing or windy, yet.  We’re taking full advantage by eating our fill, relaxing and doing some laundry.  It’s all part of the prep for our next rotation up on the mountain.

The past week at Advanced Basecamp (ABC) was a great foundation for our acclimatization and the best part was getting on the Lhotse Face.  After all these weeks of prep it was great to feel like we were on a mountain as opposed to being down amongst the mountains.  Our next trip up will be more of a test to see how our conditioning is holding up.  But for now we’re resting.
