Tales from Everest

By @

We had the pleasure of sitting in on Edie Grossfield's Post-Bulletin interview with Amine and Bryan. Some untold stories were told and a good deal of the team's personality came through.¬†The team is watching for news of the Everest ascent which is set to begin tomorrow from base camp. Clearly the weather is being cooperative as evidenced by this weekend's ascent by another team that included 73-year old Japanese climber, Tamae Watanabe. Now that the Mayo team is back they are discovering photos they took that they didn't have the bandwidth to send earlier from Nepal. We have four here from their trek through the icefields.
