  Everest 2006 Team No Limits: Report From Team No Limits, Roger Coffey - Climbers Making Way to Camp III


 

Report from Base Camp Manager, Roger Coffey - 5/8/06: Doug, Will, and Jeff are in Camp II and will rest for the day under beautiful sunshine. They arrived yesterday, after the long straight run from Base Camp to Camp II - for another acclimatization climb. Tomorrow, they will move up to Camp III  - and most likely stay there one night. Following final acclimatization, they will return to Base Camp and enjoy a well deserved rest. Upon their return to Base Camp, they will begin the waiting process for a summit push, tentatively scheduled for May 11- 15. 

Our Friends, MJ and Julie, are now headed to Base Camp after a successful acclimatization at Camp III - they report feeling well. Julie says "hi" to all her family and friends. The German duo, Dirk and Klaus on the Asian Trekking permit also, are already well acclimatized and patiently waiting out their days here in Base Camp with me, looking forward to a completed Camp IV - and ropes on the upper mountain. When all of the logistics are in line, the climbers will try and judge the weather so that a clear day becomes a summit day! Yesterday,  One of our Sherpas successfully reached Camp IV. Soon, we should have tents pitched on the South Col and then begin the runs of food, fuel, and oxygen supplies!

Patience, prayers, and a bit of luck is what's needed now

Talk to you soon,
Roger Coffey, TNL - Base Camp Manager
