Jacob calls in from Camp 2 Everest

Jacob called in this evening from Camp 2!  The team moved up from Base Camp today very early and it sounds like they are all moving great on their summit push.  The weather forecasts are all looking really good for their May 25th summit attempt and everything is in place.   They’ll take a rest day at Camp 2 tomorrow, and then it’s Camp3, Camp 4 (S. Col) and on to the summit!   Two of our Sherpa team went to the S. Col today to check on the tents, Oxygen, and other equipment that was cached there earlier.  The winds have been quite strong up high, and they wanted to reassure themselves  that nothing was blown away.  Everything is in place for their summit push, they’ll try to relax a bit tomorrow and then they are off.

Here’s Jacob from C2 (21,500ft/6500m)
