All Summit Lobuche and Prepare to Spend a Couple of Nights up High

A message from Adrian last night confirmed that all is well on Lobuche. A storm on Sunday kept everyone hunkered down in Moraine Camp, but at 5pm the clouds miraculously cleared and everyone climbed “perfect neve” to the 6000m summit in ideal conditions. All are now down, resting another day at camp before making their way back up, where they will spend two nights acclimatizing on the summit. David Tait and Adrian will leave a day ahead of the rest in order to have three nights up high. Meanwhile, the Himex Sherpa are making major progress on the upper mountain. They are now living out of Camp 2 on Everest, setting things up for the team, and thinking about fixing ropes higher. Lobuche is in “the best condition [Adrian] has ever seen” so let’s hope the same goes for Everest!
