Mike Hamill reports that they have had several days of improved weather now, so the team is hopeful that the snow conditions are stabilizing up higher. We have now extended the expedition past the planned itinerary, and unfortunately some members have been forced to depart due to previous commitments. The remaining climbers are hanging tough and ready to climb. We have the Sherpa team heading up to C2 today (the 26th in Tibet) and they plan to fix the Yellow Band the next day (the 27th ) if they feel comfortable with the slopes above C2. The IMG climbers are planning to go to C1 on the 27th , C2 on the 28th, C3 on the 29th, and summit on the 30th .
We’ll keep you posted!
