After a bout of turbulent weather which saw Everest Base Camp covered in 7cm-thick snow, the weather finally looks set for a summit window.
The last couple of days saw the entire Khumbu region, including surrounding towns like Pangboche and Pheriche experience high precipitation and winds. Even though this is not entirely weather to celebrate about, we remain hopeful here at Base Camp – because every inch of snow is an indication of the jet streams passing over us and the coming of good weather.
We’re sticking to the two summit-team strategy for this push so that we have higher chances of success. The first summit team will set off on the morning of 15th May, while the second summit team will head off a couple of days later. Hopes burn bright within the team, and we’re going to give this our best shot!
