Mt. Everest Expedition: Sherpa Team to Camp 3

Way to go Team! 

Last night we had a team of five Sherpa depart from Camp 2 at 11: 30 pm en route to the South Col. They reached the South Col in just under eight hours.  A few of them were also able to make a carry to Camp 3.  They encountered some high winds and did an amazing job, getting most of the oxygen bottles, tents and supporting equipment to Camp 2 for the first time this season.  And here they are back at Base Camp already. These guys are tough!

The rest of the team did some local hiking to keep up the fitness. Teams continue to work on the upper mountain but have not placed any new rope above the Col as of yet.  The route fixing group has decided to wait a few days based on forecasts of strong winds in the near future.
