I had a great talk with Fabrizio who called in from BC to let us know that everything was going very well and everyone is feeling great!
They are settled in at 5600m alongside of several other expeditions and enjoying the company of the small community of climbers, sherpas and BC staff. A number of the climbers and sherpa are friends of members of our team so it sounds like a nice small close knit group of climbers!
The plan is to have a puja on the morning of the 22nd and then make an acclimatization carry to C1 on the 23rd! Fabrizio will call in every few days with voice dispatches from here on so check in often to hear our team's progress!
