Mt. Everest Expedition: Team Begins Summit Bid

This is Dave Hahn calling down from Camp 2 on Mt. Everest.  Finally! We are out of Basecamp and on our summit bid.  We had a great morning coming up.  The climbing route is actually in pretty good condition.  The ice fall is scary as ever but the Ice Fall Doctors have been doing a good job and we got through in pretty quick time.  It was a beautiful morning nice and clear and calm. 
The mountain is quieting down a little bit.  There were a lot of Sherpas carrying loads down today for expeditions that were finished.  So the mountain is quieting down and we think that is a hopeful sign for us.  The forecast is coming together and there are still a few teams still around that are on the same time frame as us.  We have been comparing notes.
Things are going pretty well.  Our Sherpa team is going to come up tomorrow to ABC.  We are going to rest tomorrow and get ready for the Lhotse Face and moving to Camp 3 the following day.  We are pretty optimistic.  We are all feeling really good right now and we are going to keep you informed.

Dave and Melissa:

Just heard the news of crowding in the death zone and subsequent loss of life this past weekend.  So glad to read the blog and to be assured all is well with you both.  Have fun and be safe.  Can’t wait to read about your successful return.

Cheers,
Jo
