8,300 meters / 27,390 feet

7:30 pm on Everest; Rachel just called from ABC. She has been in radio contact with the guys for the past few hours as they've moved up to C4 at 8300m. They are rested, hydrated and have eaten a lot of food. They are packed up and ready to go but are waiting for the wind to die down a bit. They sounded conservative because of the wind yet are extremely positive. Katie brought some of the gear down from the North Col earlier in the day.
Will keep you updated. . .

Our collective energy (thoughts, prayers, wicked-fine juju...) will hopefully push you up and help guide you back down Everest.
