Back Safe to Advance Base Camp

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

This s Dave, we’re down now at Advance Base Camp, 21,300 again, myself and Leif Whittaker, Tshering and Tendi spent the night up on the South Col. Pretty bizarre, when we came down this morning the Lhotse Face was completely empty, we have been used to seeing hundreds . . . . .completely empty, we broke trail down through new snow and coming into ABNC was pretty surreal, no tents anymore, again from being a camp that hundreds of people were living in was completely empty except for our camp. Tonight, myself, Leif, Tshering, Tendi, Lama Babu and our two Camp II cooks we are the population of Camp II entirely. So our cooks, and Pasang are taking great care of us. We are all looking forward to getting down to base camp tomorrow. Kind of oddly, it continues to snow, it snowed here seemingly all day, that didn’t seem to be in the forecast but there you have it. Our memories of being on the summit yesterday aren’t fading, but like I say are minds are starting to be filled with being off the mountain, being finished. Soon.
