05/19/2005

59th day of the 10 Years of Brazil on Everest Expedtion

Camp 2 (6,400m / Camp 3 (7,300m)

Towards the top of Everest.

 

Dear Friends!

 

We didn't resist the temptation to finish the climb.  Irivan and I are in Camp 3 (7,300m) with the expectative, in the next hours, to gain the last meters until the summit.

 

Today, during the climb from camp 2 to camp 3, we felt that the wind would give us a truce from the early morning of Friday until Saturday and it is probable that between 30 and 40 people will attempt to get to the summit of Everest.

 

The forecast is that the wind will diminish and that it will snow on Friday.  On Saturday the wind should get stronger and it will also be foggy.

 

We brought our satellite telephone to camp 3, but we won't take it to camp 4, because it is very heavy.  Also, we are totally worried with the climb.  When we come back to camp 3 we will send more news.

 

Irivan and I confess that we are a bit unconfident about the weather, but even so our hope to take the flag of Brazil to the top of the world is big.

 

Brazil, we are going together for the summit of Everest.

 

A big hug

 

Waldemar and Irivan
