Nepal Everest Lhotse Climb and Trek. Dispatch :
Greetings to everyone. We are all feeling very excited and in awe of where we
are, because our entire team of men and women of all ages and abilities have
had an extended period of many days of very restorative replenishment at
basecamp and green villages with thicker air below. As of last night, half of
our team of foreign climbers and sherpas headed up from basecamp, and
disappeared into the clouds to go for the twin summits of Everest and Lhotse.
Tonight, the first half of our group will be in camp 3 and the remaining
members of our team and all of our remaining sherpas are going to depart
basecamp at 1:00 am in the morning to work their way up through the icefall
and on up into camp 2, in order to try our luck on getting to the top of the
world's highest mountain. So, after today, our entire team will be trying to
climb Everest and Lhotse.
In just a few days from now, we will be able to tell you about the success of
our attempts. At this juncture, we wish to send out our profound thanks and
appreciation to all of our loved ones, friends, and colleagues at home who
have lent their support and made our quest for the highest of the heights
possible. Please continue to wish us luck. With great thanks and appreciation,
from all of us in the SummitClimb and SummitTrek 2013 May Nepal Everest Lhotse
Climb and Trek.
