Yesterday was a classic ‘hurry up and wait’ scenario – hurry up to get on the airplane, go for a quick ride down the taxi strip and then turn around and shut down the engines. That’s OK – no guts, no glory. Today, all the gear is still in the van and we are on standby. Pilot Paul says – “be ready to roll in 5-10 minutes, IF we call”. Expedition climbers need to be patient.
