Probably the most impressive thing of this entire expedition has occurred: our remarkable Sherpa team has summitted Everest and fixed ropes all the way to the top. I'm in awe of what they've done, and all before the end of April. I hope I can simply follow in their footsteps.
The climbing team will spend the next several days on a 2 day acclimatization climb spending nights @ the North Col 7,000m and Camp 2 7,500m. some of us start after breakfast this AM. Once completed, we will set off for a Base Camp rest before our summit attempts..............weather permitting,
