Going for it: The Everest / Lhotse Twofer

As you can see in the RainOn tracking map above a subset of team is underway on their Lhotse attempt.  Details from the Alpine Ascents website:
Lhotse Climbers on their way!! May 19, 9:30pm
We have some takers for Lhotse! Alpine Ascents guide Garrett Madison, Tom Halliday, and Kami Rita Sherpa are leaving Everest Camp 4 now and making their way across the South Col to Lhotse Camp 4. It will take them an hour or so to make it to the Lhotse high camp where they will have a quick break before setting out for the 4th highest mountain in the world. It is pretty amazing when you consider that both Garrett and Tom were standing on the summit of the highest mountain in the world earlier today.

 Godspeed Garrett, Tom, and Kami Rita Sherpa!  We are enjoying the show.
