Everyone checked in this morning!
Stay with me here….Mark checked in from Yak Camp this morning. All is well and the Team is climbing well and working together. They will touch Camp 1 tomorrow and head back down.
Mike Hamill is at Camp 1 and will touch Camp 2 and return to Ama Dablam Base Camp tomorrow as well.
Josh checked in from Ama Dablam Base Camp and will head up on their Camp 2 rotation in the morning.
Phunuru also called and said that everything is going as planned with logistics, and he and the Sherpa team are having a good time and are impressed with all of the climbers.
It is always nice to hear from the Teams and get some laughter over the phone. Mark said that the weather has been just great. Beautiful days and a ton of stars at night.
Tye Chapman checked in from Dzongla. Great tea house! Of course, they dropped in altitude and will get a good night sleep. The 3 x 3 Team made a stop at Lobuche Base Camp to say hello to our Lobuche Climbing Team and see what the set up looked like. They will continue up valley tomorrow to Thagnak.
Our Lobuche Climbing Team will do fixed line training tomorrow at Lobuche Base Camp and will take some rest. The following day will take them to High Camp and line them up for a summit bid of Lobuche!
