Update May 27th:
Our team decided to wait at camp
2 due to weather. We are now targeting either the 30th 31st or 1st for our
summit day. All the best, Christine
Hello from Camp 2!
We are currently resting at
camp 2. It's a beautiful day here. Yesterday, me moved up from base camp.
Tomorrow we climb up to camp 3, and camp 4 (south col) on the 28th. If the
winds are low enough, we will depart for the summit at 10 p.m. on the 28th.
Our team is doing well.
Everyone is strong and healthy. The winds have gone down significantly. We
have a strong Sherpa team fixing lines to the summit on the night of the
28th. We will also be using extra oxygen, so we keep warmer on summit day. We
are hopeful for the 29th . However we are prepared to spend an extra night at
camp 4 if winds are too strong. We would then attempt the summit on the 30th.
All the best, Christine
