Expedition Leader Mark Tucker
reports by satellite phone that the IMG team members are doing a series of
acclimatization runs up the hill. Jason Tanguay, Swee Chiow, Dan Barter, and
Ron Hoglin spent three nights at Camp 2 and hiked up to the base of the Lhotse
Face. Hopefully the route to C3 will be finished in the next day or two.
Several of our Sherpas are working on this along with Sherpas from
other teams. Will and Brad have been up at Camp 1 but got held up by a
collapse in the icefall which required some work by the "doctors" to get it
put back together. The others are getting ready to move up also. One of the
American movie team was hit in the chest by a falling rock (scrambling around
Base Camp) and had to be evacuated by helicopter, using the new heli pad that
the IMG team helped to build. We'll keep you posted as we hear more!
