Camp 4 at Everest, 26, 200 feet..more waiting

Looks like a lot of the First Ascent team made it up to Camp 4 today in really good weather. Melissa went down to recover, and will head up with Dave Hahn. This is a nice video of what Everest looks like up high, and the steepness of the Lhotse face-awesome.

According to Alan Arnette, high winds have kept (most?) people back from the summit bid Sunday. Here’s hoping for Monday!

Firstascent audio update from Peter Whittaker at the South Col is HERE.
From what I can gather  from their website, the Kazakh Lhotse-Everest traverse team is also at camp 4 hoping to make a Lhotse summit.
