Mt. Everest: Getting Ready to Climb from the South Col

Elevation: 26,000'

Hey this is Seth Waterfall checking in from the South Col, Camp 4.  We just woke up a little while ago and are getting set to have breakfast, which is kind of strange for this hour. But the winds have died down - what little wind we had. It looks to be a nice night for climbing so we are going to give it a shot.  In the next half hour to hour we will put our packs on and head up towards the Triangular Face, then of course to The Balcony, South Summit, and, hopefully, for us the summit of Mt. Everest.  A few teams have already started and a few more are getting ready to go.  But it doesn’t appear to be a very crowded night.  That all works in our favor.  So if everything works out for us we’ll check in again from the top of Mount Everest -  High Point on planet Earth. Wish us luck.  Ciao
