@everestat53 Good Luck Jeff!
. And so the adventure really begins.... Today is the start of Dad and his team's first rotation. On the mountain a rotation is where you'll climb high, and then climb all the way back to where to started to allow your body to recover and acclimatise. This rotation will last for 4-5 days (depending on weather) - they will climb through the Khumbu Icefall, past Camp 1 all the way to Camp 2, where they will hopefully spend 2 nights before then climbing to Camp 3 and potentially spending 1 night. The team will then descend back to Base Camp.
To put into perspective how tough these few days are going to be, Camp 2 is like sleeping at over 500m higher than the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro... and Camp 3 is like sleeping at almost double the height of Mt Fuji.
This is going to be a very tough couple of days, but Dad said yesterday that he was really excited - here he is climbing through the icefall for the first time..! #everestclimb
