Hi Peter, it’s Ed. If I break up or go too long I’ll make a couple of calls and hopefully you can stitch this all together.
Hi everyone. It’s May 20th, 9:00pm. And fortunately, happily, thankfully, we are here at base camp. We left the South Col at Camp IV this morning at 8:00 in the morning. We had a phenomenal nights sleep. You just go close your eyes and you’re out, basically, for 8 hours after climbing Everest. We made a decision as we were descending rather then stopping at Camp II, we thought, what the heck, let’s go all the way to base camp. It was cloudy today and cooler lower so the Icefall wasn’t as threatening as it would have been on a hot, sunny day. And so we made it through, obviously, and arrived here . . .
