Update from Everest Base Camp!

After much analysis of a variety of forecasts, we have decided that a window of lower winds starting May 19th looks like it will be hopeful for a summit attempt. We will be checking that every day for any changes, but it looks good. So the whole team is off tomorrow morning at 4am for…
