this is Todd, we're at Base Camp right now, just
checking in. We went up to Camp I the day
before yesterday and spent the night, had a great
night up there. It's a beautiful day, it took us
about 7 hours to climb up to the ridge at 21,000
feet, had beautiful views all around.
Everybody is very very well, we got up the next
morning and hiked up about an hour or so up
towards Camp II on the fixed lines, it was the
first time we've put on our crampons and boots and
used our ice axe.
moved up for about two hours and got used to the
fixed lines and looked at what we needed to do
to get to Camp II. Yesterday and Today was
a rest day so tomorrow morning we are planning
on heading back up to Camp I. Everybody's
in good health and good spirits and the mountain
looks like it's in good shape. Several teams may
be going for the summit tomorrow. Talk to you
soon, bye bye.
