The team is planning a few more nights at Camp 2 to properly acclimatize, and a trip up to Camp 3 before dropping back to Base Camp for one more break before launching for our summit bid. We are planning a little (few days) later summit in the hopes most of the teams here can summit earlier. The slightly later windows offers some advantages in warmer temperatures, normally lighter winds and hopefully less crowded ropes.
