Close to the Summit: Dave Checks in from Camp III, Summit Bid Tomorrow

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

This is Dave on Mt Everest. And I just saw that million dollar sunset again from Camp III. Sharing a tent here with Lief Whittaker and all is well. Michael Brown is up here with us, he got an eyeful in his camera for that sunset. Weather is great, weather is wonderful. A number of people summitted today and we were pretty happy for that. We saw some of those same folks as they came down the Lhotse face on their way to advance base camp. Forecast is good for us, still shooting for Monday the 24th over here, it’s Saturday the 22nd now, and so tomorrow our work is pretty clear: we’re going to get up early in the morning and we’re going to climb through the Yellow Band at 25,000 feet, climb through the Geneva Spur, finish the Lhotse Face and walk into the South Col. Get ready for a summit bid, leaving sometime tomorrow night. It’s all coming down to this and right now it’s very encouraging, everything going well. Bye for now
