Everest Tibet Team Holds for Weather

10 May 2014 -

Hi this is Scott Patch with an Everest Tibet dispatch for 10 June.

Yesterday the entire Everest Team made it to Basecamp from our second rotation up on Everest. Also, yesterday, our trekkers left Basecamp and one of our Everest members too. Garry your quick wit, good nature and your ability to translate multiple dialects of English will be missed .... best of luck to you!

Today, and for the next few days, we rest at Basecamp in preparation for our Summit push. The weather on the upper mountain needs to improve before we can start to think of heading up. From our cozy Basecamp we can see the upper reaches of Everest getting pounded by the ferocious winds. For now we are content in our warm basecamp (currently inside my tent it is nearly 30 degrees Celsius!!).

Eventually, the jet stream will move North and our bid for the summit will begin. But for now we rest, heal and enjoy visiting with the other Expeditions here at Basecamp.

Thanks for following our Expedition.
