Manaslu Expedition "Seeking
11 (7:30 AM): Summit Attempt Underway
Scott at Base Camp:
are fine up on the mountain this morning. A storm
rolled through yesterday dumping 3 to 8 inches of
snow. Dan and Jerome at Camp 2 will now wait for Tom,
Brian, and Mike to join them at Camp 2 later today
(5/11), and they will all make the summit push
together (with Kusang and Kan Cha as Sherpas).
Plans are to move to Camp 3 tomorrow (5/12) with a
summit attempt very early the next day (5/13). These
are only plans; we'll have to see how the weather
permits. All report feeling great. Additionally, this
schedule puts our team in sync with the Australians
(7), and the Japanese (4), and as such will enable all
teams to move together (strength in numbers).
keep you all regularly informed (sun and solar
charging system allowing). Best thoughts and
wishes to Tom, Dan, Jerome, Brian, Mike, Kusang, and
Kan Cha over the next few days.
