Everest 2019 – South Col (Camp 4)

Hello Everyone, Today we had a tough but good climb to the South Col at almost 8,000m or 26,000ft. It’s the last camp and we plan on heading for the summit tonight at 12 midnight. You can follow along tonight as we head out because Lakpa Rita will be posting our progress from Basecamp as we check in via radio. He will post as we leave, at the balcony, South Summit, True Summit, and we’ll update you as we get back to the South Col. Don’t fret if one and a few of these updates don’t happen though because sometimes technology on Mt Everest doesn’t always work. Thanks for following along, we are excited to be heading up!

Spectacular Expedition. Having been on many climbs with Alpine Ascents I knew what to expect but was blown away by how smoothly the trip went, the level of execution and he quality of the staff. Truly a top notch operation.
