Elevation: 21,300'

Hello, this is Dave Hahn calling from Camp 2 on Mount Everest, 21,300’.  All is well.  We moved up this morning from Camp 1 in perfect weather conditions, actually a little bit hot in the Western Cwm.  Very much aware of the dramas playing out above us on the mountain.  A number of our friends went to the summit safely and returned in these last couple of days. But, there’s also been some problems up high and much of the mountain was pre-occupied these last couple of days, especially today with trying to help a climber, incapacitated high on Lhotse.  And the drama is still playing out.  Lam Babu, our Sirdar, is putting together a team of Sherpas who will go up tonight and try to get that individual down the Lhotse Face.  So we’re certainly concerned and going to be tuning in to try and back up Lam; meanwhile, trying to continue our own climb.  We’re all doing fine here at Advanced Basecamp.  Our intention is to stage out of here tomorrow to rest and recuperate from our climb up and get ready for a climb higher.  Anyway, lots of exciting times now on Mount Everest as everybody is in motion going for the top and coming down.  All good for us and stay tuned.  Bye for now.
