Another great night in the Khumbu has our Teams moving!
Our Lobuche climbing team has done their training and is ready to test themselves on Lobuche Peak tonight. Tye Chapman called in from Thagnak after an up and down day on the trail for the 3 x 3 Team. Tye called just as night was falling and said the sky was bright with stars and thinks the Lobuche Team will have a cool and clear night for their climb. Go get Lobuche! We are all pulling for you!
Tye and the 3 x 3 Trekking Team has been earning every step. They went over Chola Pass and into Thagnak. Conditions are good and the Team is looking forward to checking out Gokyo tomorrow.
On Ama Dablam, Mark Allen sent in a few photos and wanted to let us know that the Team is doing great and working hard towards their last rotation before the summit bid.
Mike has been to Camp 2 and is now back at BC. Josh took off for a couple nights up high. They will spend a night around 18,000 feet and then two more at Camp 2. This will put them in position to go for the summit. Mark and his team are right behind Josh, Mark notes, “following in their footsteps.”
