Mt. Everest: The Team is Amidst the Waiting Game

Elevation: 17,575'

We’re squarely in the middle of the waiting game here at Everest Basecamp.  The big teams have assembled a few strong guys who are working on fixing the ropes to the summit today and tomorrow.  Once those are in then it’s all a matter of time until we get a good weather window for the summit bid.

As for us we’re healing up and feeling rested for the push for the top.  We’re giving the weather forecast more and more scrutiny every day and the tick marks on the calendar are starting to add up.  It shouldn’t be too much longer now.
