Mt. Everest Expedition: The Team Completes their First Rotation

Elevation: 17,575'

After three nights spent at Camp I, the time to descend came early this morning.  The lively winds helped to motivate us out of camp when the sun hit our tents. Walking down through the icefall after being up for a few days is always interesting, and amazing how fast things have changed. Everyone made their way through the ever-changing river of ice efficiently.  Base Camp always feels so much sweeter after a few nights up high.  We arrived under clear skies and unpacked into the solitude of our own tents; our home away from home. Everyone is doing really well, and after a few days of rest at Base Camp, we will all certainly be feeling even better as we prepare for our second rotation onto the upper slopes of the mountain.
