Josh Tapp called in from Plaza Argentina in good spirits. The team made short work of the trail today and are enjoying a little down time at Base Camp. They’ll take a rest day tomorrow – maybe stretch the legs a little but generally speaking they’ll just hang out and get their lungs back under them. All is well. Josh made a point to say that his team sends some well wishes back home.
Eben called in from C2. He and Martin carried to High Camp today while the team took an acclimatization hike this afternoon. They’re setting themselves up for success later this weekend. They’ll keep their eyes on the weather, but it looks like they’ll head up to HC tomorrow and take a look at things for a possible summit attempt on Sunday. The Hot Sauce situation seems to have worked itself out though Eben might smell of chiles and vinegar for the next few days.
