2002 American Manaslu Expedition "Seeking the Spirit"

May 12 (9:15 AM): Summit Attempt Underway

From Scott at Base Camp: Tom, Dan, Jerome, Brian, Mike, Kan Cha, and Kusang headed out of Camp 2 early today. They are now at 22,500' and feeling great as they move to Camp 3 (~24,500'). Weather is great -- cool, with little wind.  They are moving up along with the Australians. If all goes as planned, they will reach Camp 3 early this afternoon, and then leave around 11:00 p.m. or so tonight for the Summit. Tomorrow is the big day. Let's keep our hopes up. Weather last night was great; let's hope it holds. Will keep you posted.  Following summit, the team should be back in Base Camp in two or three days.
