  Mt Everest 2006: Alpine Ascents Everest 2006: 7200 meters


 

May 4 - Camp III
    
7200m
It's 7:30 pm here in CIII! We made it up through some morning winds that gaveway to a very intense afternoon sun. The team was stellar today and everyone pulled into camp relatively close together at around 3 pm. Unfortunately we don't have the battery power to send photos of today now but will at a later time.

We've just finished up with some testing for research being conducted at BC. The fact that people were still up for being tested after arriving here shows that the team is doing great. Everyone is excited to have made this big step. Tomorrow morning we'll wait for the sun to hit the tents then begin our pack up and descent to CII. After a night in CII we'll head to BC briefly before our drop back.

The wind has just begun howling again here in CIII and it looks like we're in for a noisy night.

All the best,
Dave
