Hi Everyone ... This is Scott Patch with an update for the Everest Tibet
Expedition this 18 of May.
Another beautiful day here at basecamp with again stunning views of Everest.
Today teams meet with the CTMA (Chinese Tibet Mountaineering Association) and
it looks like our break in the weather is coming. Most teams are moving from
Basecamp tomorrow to Advanced Base Camp in preparation for our final push up
Everest. The CTMA is looking to fix the rope from camp 3 to summit on the 23rd
and 24th! This would give us our opportunity to head up behind them and
summit, somewhere from the 25th to 27th. All teams are planning on meeting
again on the 21st to share weather forecast and plan our summit strategies!
Very exciting indeed!!!
It's been a long wait here at Basecamp and everyone is excited to get moving
back up the mountain. We will spend one night at our interim camp before
reaching ABC on the 20th. This will offer us at least a days rest at ABC
before heading up for our summit push.
Lots to do before we depart Basecamp tomorrow morning! Thanks for following
