Updates from Everest

Good News today as the first team of the season has summited.  This was mixed team fixing ropes.  After 1pm today the summit was reached.  We have heard news also from the North side that the ropes are going in there also.  Our team is good.  We just returned from another hike over towards Pumori for training as its been a long time waiting now for a better forecast. We have chosen not to go up in the earlier window (May 19,20,21) as we feel there could be some serious delays or worse from the number of people going.  Reports of over 200 going up on the Lhotse Face today.  There is a good weather window coming together in a few days and we will be looking at being in position for that.  Everyone here is healthy and ready to go.   We are very close now after  all preparations, hard work and waiting weeks for the right conditions.   Just a few more days…..

Cheers from Scott at the Mountain Trip Everest Base Camp!
