Exciting! I just got a cell phone call from Garrett Madison from Everest Base Camp. They have been having some issues with their satellite modem and that has made it difficult for them to provide blog updates. They hope to have that resolved while the climbing team is away making their first rotation up the mountian starting today.
The team will climb up through the Khumbu icefall to Camp 1 where they will spend a couple of nights before moving up the Western Cwm to Camp 2 for a few nights acclimatizing before descenting back to Base Camp.
Garrett and team will have the location tracking turned on so we can follow their progress on the 3D map. Sounds better than Friday night TV to me!!
