Phone Call From Everest Base Camp

Vanessa called in a post after the team’s first rotation up to 21,500′ on Mount Everest.  They are all back in Base Camp, having descended through the Khumbu Icefall during the wee hours of the morning and are enjoying the comforts of the (relatively) thicker air.
