Everest Dispatch #63

Jake Norton, Expedition Photographer (JN): Yes, I copy you Linden. Just trying to get in touch with Peter. I’m up on the South summit trying to figure out where they are. Over.

Linden Mallory, Base Camp Manager (LM): Copy that JK. Once you get a location on everyone if you wouldn’t mind relaying that back down to me when you have a moment that would be most appreciated. Over.

(JN): Yes, copy that. I can give you the rough position. I’m at the head turn. Behind me, right close to one another are Peter, John, Tashi, Tendi, and Dawa and then behind them, I’m not sure how far, are Ed and Gerry, I think Ed on the uphill side, Gerry a bit further back. Over.

(LM): Copy that Jake. Thank you. Any estimate on how far that spread is? Are we looking at minutes or in the hour range.

(JN): I would say more like minutes.

(LM): Copy that Jake. Thank you for the update.

    This is beyond amazing to me. What discipline and self-control. Of course, keeping everything in perspective, I’m in Kansas. Be careful and enjoy every moment. Toto and I are watching and praying.
