Team EVEREST 2019: Dress Rehearsal

Published Monday, 20th May 2019

As the team now wait for the weather window to attempt their summit push they are using valuable time at Base Camp to familiarise themselves with their kit and equipment.

Rich said:

“It’s important that the team are familiar with their kit and equipment, that the use of technical apparatus such as oxygen systems is second nature, and everything is double checked for safety. Rehearsing this at 5400m should ensure the team will be confident higher up on the mountain”

The ropes are now in place at the summit... all the team need now is a little bit luck as they wait patiently and deliberate over the weather forecasts!
