Everest Dispatch #78
10:00pm May 22 Nepal Time
Linden Mallory, Base Camp Manager (LM): Go ahead Dave this is base.
Dave Hahn (DH): Base camp. So it’s 10 p.m. We’re awake and our stoves are going. I think we are going to go ahead with the “walking at midnight” plan. We still got wind here but here at the South Col it’s maybe 15[mph] at the moment. Doesn’t appear to be any cloud caps on the summit. No high clouds. We got stars and like I said winds are about 15[mph] at the Col. Over.
(LM): Copy that Dave. Well good news. We’ll keep our fingers crossed down here that it remains that way and let’s plan on chatting when you guys are ready to walk. Over.
(DH): Alright. There are a number of people ready to walk right now from other groups and some are starting out and that’s according to plan. Get them out in front of us and see what they find on the triangular face as far as winds, etc. Over.
(LM): Copy that Dave. Yeah, that sounds like a good plan. Over.
(DH): Okay. Everybody seems to be doing well and time for some eating and drinking for the next hour or so.
