The whole team is now off the Lhotse Face and headed toward Camp 2.  Time to take a deep breath and figure the big part of the climb is over.  Still have the Icefall tomorrow morning but like where we are at.

It has been great following Dave, Linden, Bill and Sara through this blog for the 2011 Everest expedition the last two months.  Thank you all for the inspiration!  It has helped my training immensely.  I’m looking forward to Mt. Rainier in August with RMI.  Good luck in the future to Bill and Sara!
