Mt. Everest 2010 #44-South Col (Camp 4)--GOING FOR IT!!

Gabcast! Mt. Everest 2010 #44


Namaste everybody from the South Col. or Camp 4.

We've been here for a few hours. We are hydrating, eating and resting on some oxygen. You hear a little bit of coughing and stuff. Hopefully we'll be leaving in a couple of hours, which would make it 7:00 our time, and heading up for the summit.

We had a good time, coming here. Everything went well. I was on oxygen the whole way, so was Domhnall, and our two sherpas are here with us as well taking good care of us.

So hopefully the next call will be from the summit if everything goes well. The forecast is still for some pretty nasty weather, but hopefully it's going to hold off until after we are down past Camp 3. So we'll talk to you in a little bit and follow the SPOT and thanks to everyone for listening.

We'll talk to you soon. Bye.
