IMG expedition leader Chris Booher phoned in with an update on the team's
progress and plans. Yesterday Mike and Justin headed up to Camp 1 for an
overnight with Nacho, Jim, Mark, Lindon, and Peter. They will climb this
morning up thru the ice cliff below Camp 2, and then they'll head down to
Advance Base Camp to rest for a few days. Chris and Garrett will head up to
Camp 1 today with Lanta, Nancy, Tamara, Ken, Bill, and Adam. They'll spend
tonight at Camp 1, then take a trip up through the ice cliff before returning
back to Advance Base Camp tomorrow.
Everyone is feeling great so far, the weather is OK, the Sherpas are making
great progress up the mountain, everything except the sat phones seem to be
clicking right along! We probably won't hear from the team until Friday, at
which time we'll get an update on their progress and an idea about when
they'll head uphill again.
