We're enjoying being down at low altitude for some "Rest and Recovery" after being up high on Everest for quite awhile. Everyone on the team is doing super well and benefiting from being down to lower altitudes, as this is just what the doctor ordered.
We will head back up to Base Camp over the next few days. Some of our Sherpa team is also down for a rest before our summit push. Everything is completely set for the summit bid right now. We have over 70 bottles of Oxygen now cached at High Camp. Camp 3 is fully supplied and ready, so it seems there is not much left to do but go for a hike up to the top in the next few days!
Stay closely tuned as we are about to give the summit a go!
