An Everest update from the Summit Climb team from 5th May.
“Bring on the Rest!
“Our day was occupied by amazing breakfast, lunch, dinner, watching movies, drinking tea, eating cake.
“Our members are beginning to walk down to lower villages to breath thicker air.
“Our incredible Sherpas are continuing to stock the upper camps with oxygen tanks, food, stoves, fuel, tents.
“You may ask: OF COURSE we feel guilty our Sherpas are working while we are lazing. How could we not? But our Sherpas are payed well, they receive good tips. We look after our Sherpas health and safety extremely carefully. Each of our Sherpas probably supports 10 family members, so their money goes to a very good purpose.
“Without our Sherpas, climbing Everest would be much more challenging. We recognize that, and are thankful.”
