Mt. Everest Expedition: Up to Camp 1

Our Climbing Team was up early again today with Camp 1 as the goal. It was still a little windy at Base Camp but not as much as yesterday so our climbing Sherpa headed out in front of the group again to set tents at Camp 1.
We have a nice spotting scope here at Base Camp that allows me to follow the teams progress for the majority of the climb to Camp 1.  It can be a beautiful dance the way you climb in the Khumbu Ice fall or an ugly representation of how not to do it.  If I were a judge on Dancing with the Stars our team would be moving into next weeks competition.
Dave and Sara were very fluid in there ascent working as the lead team with Linden and Bill right behind.
As Expedition Leader Dave Hahn sets the highest standard and expectation possible of his team this making this hazardous endeavor the safest possible.
Lots of challenges exist on this push to Camp 1 which we cannot eliminate, but moving with strong technique, knowing the smartest and safest places to take a break and when to push a bit harder and faster will get you to camp in reasonable shape.  We want everyone arriving at Camp 1 feeling good and with enough reserve to help your body recover after such a work out. 

We received a radio call just minutes ago informing us that the climbing team is minutes away from Camp 1.  Nice work team!
Till next time
