Linden Mallory, Base Camp Manager (LM): Melissa, Melissa this is base camp do you copy
Melissa Arnot (MA): Yeah go ahead Linden can you hear me?
(LM): Loud and clear, how are you guys doing up there?
(MA): We’re doing great, Kent and I are just in the tent at the South Col enjoying some hot liquid soup and happy to be up here. Ya know it’s pretty windy and a little bit of some blowing snow, but they came in with and out with blue sky and some sun, so we are pretty hopeful that it will calm down for us tonight.
(LM): Once Dave gets up to camp 4 and you are all tucked in I have a new weather report for you over.
(MA): Sounds good Linden, we are just going to try to rest up here and get prepared for the Central climb tonight.
Seth Waterfall (SW): Hey Linden this is the South Col, Dave has called us and he’s nearing the crest of the Geneva Spur he’s climbing in the steeper parts and he was just trying to stay off his radio and keep his mask on. Sounds like he is making great progress and he’ll be at the South Col shortly. We’ll call as soon as he’s up here.
(LM): Copy that Seth, thanks for the update. We’re standing by up here and looking for that call.
