MOUNT EVEREST - In Mount Everest Base Camp, elevation 18,000', a brisk wind leaves a few inches of snow, but at 23,700', that brisk wind is over 100 mph, combined with arctic temperatures, making it feel like -70°C. Tents disappear beneath crushing drifts, assuming their tie-downs stay put. When tie-downs break or come loose from the ground, the tent and its contents can be lost, adding to the infamous trash collection accumulating on Mount Everest.
Dan Allen and his team are hidden near C3, accepting the difficult weather, for the benefit expected when they launch their June 15 summit attempt.
