Updates from Individuals and Teams on Everest – 23rd May.
“Today we had beautiful weather and no crowds to make our climb to Camp 3 at 23,400ft. We are feeling good here with currently no wind this afternoon but some clouds coming up. Tomorrow morning we will climb to the South Col, the final Camp before heading out towards the summit. The weather forecasts are a little mixed but we will see if we are able to squeeze in a summit before the possibility of snow snow. We are feeling positive we will get a shot at the summit but we will see what the weather is like when we are actually there!”
“Our 5 foreigners and 8 Sherpa climbers scaled Everest this morning.
“Rest of the team members will approach to the summit of Everest during the next weather window.”

“Wishing everyone good luck for a safe and successful summit push.”
“Everest and Lhotse summits! Part of our Everest team pushed through wind this morning to stand on top while others opted to hang tight at the South Col.
