Holding at Camp 2

Strong winds higher on the mountain have us holding at Camp 2. We have been here two nights and expect to be here a couple more as we wait for the weather to stabilize.

Current weather forecasts have us targeting a departure from Camp 2 on May 15 or 16 with a summit date between May 18-20.  We are in position and ready to take advantage of a summit window as soon as it presents itself.

Though we are all ready to make the final push to the summit, these extra days at Camp 2 will allow us to further acclimatize, rest and recover and should prove beneficial on summit day.

Thanks for following along.

    May 17: I think you are going for it NOW! I’m half way around the world, true, but feel such a sense of excitement as I know you are approaching the summit. Go Jim! One more, just link one more step. You can do it and you are taking all of us with you. Stand tall on top of the world and listen closely for our eruption of cheers as you do! Love you
