9 May 2013 -
Most off the team is resting in Base Camp now, except David Roeske; he is the
last member who arrived on the mountain and is trying to complete his
acclimatization. The rest of the group is enjoying the luxuries of Base Camp:
movies, internet, lots of food, showers, etc.
The weather is still not settled and is very windy on the mountain, also the
route to the summit is not fixed yet. We hope the next couple days the wind
will lay down and the route to the summit will be ready, until then we just
All our members slept on the North Col a couple of nights and most of us even
touched 7500m (24,600 ft.), so we all have a very good acclimatization. There
are different rumors that the Chinese team ahead of us will push to the summit
between 16-18 May. If this is true we probably move up just after this.
