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 Camp 2. We are planning a couple days there to rest and reacclimatize, then move up to Camp 3, Camp 4 and the summit. Right now it looks to be the 19th. But no promises as the weather has been fickle and the forecasts even more so. Everyone is ready, healthy and happy to be on the move. We will post more over the next few days, but for now everyone is excited to be heading up and doing some last minute packing in preparation for our 4 am departure tomorrow.
