On the Traverse Between South Summit and Hillary Step

Namaste. Mark Tucker here at Base Camp and just got the quick, brief message from Mr. Dave Hahn, the first two words were South Summit, then another brief message, weather very good, that was about it. So they are working hard up there, making great progress under fantastic conditions. I asked, any crowds, any crowds? He said, very different.  So I'm thinking there was just a couple of people, there were two headlights or something in front of them, whether they passed them or not I can't tell you. But good, good ,good. Now comes the big traverse from the South Summit over to the Hillary Step, some claim to be the crux of the climb. And from there up, smooth sailing, another probably, anywhere from hour and 15 to two hours to go. I'd  love to patch you guys to him while he's on the summit. We'll see. Keep you guys posted.
