Vanessa called in from Camp 2 via satellite phone, detailing the events of the day. She said they made good time through the Khumbu Icefall, and that the day’s biggest struggle was staying cool enough in the hot sun–which might seem strange considering that they’re incredibly high on the world’s tallest peak.
Communicating from 21,500′ on Mount Everest sometimes unfortunately presents some technical difficulties, so Vanessa’s post becomes a bit garbled. We’re glad to hear she’s feeling better.
