Hello Friends! Let’s give a cheer to Team Typhod, as this morning it was confirmed that they made it to Base Camp! The team is doing their acclimation hike on Kalapatar later today, followed by an obstacle course with ladders in order to prepare for the Khumbu Ice Fall and their arrival to Camp one on Tuesday.

The reception is no bueno, but hopefully we will get some photos to come through. Elsa reports the weather is very cold (as expected) and they are working very hard. They got this.

From what I am reading, there are a LOT of hikers this year on the Nepal side, and they have arrived at base camp. They will be heading to Khumbu Ice Falls, where this year there is about 5 crevasses they will have to cross on ladders, and there are some vertical ones as well. It is time to strap on the crampons and climb the metal ladder. I have included the link below, it is the Alan Arnette blog page, it is incredible with a ton of pics and very detailed day-to-day information about what is going on with our team. I will keep you posted on what news come through! Send positive thoughts, vibes and lots of energy to our climbers!
