Yesterday the Rapid Ascent team went for a ski tour up the East Rongbuk Glacier on Mount Everest. A fun way to pass time and train while they wait on a weather window!

Both teams, Rapid Ascent and EverestNoFilter, are still waiting for a good weather window for safe and successful summits. This is something that cannot be rushed.

 

Patience, respect, and experience lead to good decisions for the team as a whole. Working with the weather is part of the game on Everest and that’s one of the main reasons why plans require so much flexibility.
