Back to Camp One

Everest 2016  •  May 15

Paul is on his way to the summit, but it will take a few days to get there. He reports in from Camp 1:

“Speedy, solid icefall climb… Hope it’s my last icefall ascent. Relaxing day at Camp 1; Spartan but beautiful, and fine weather. Fit & well.”

  1. Julie,
    Thanks for keeping us in the loop. Sending best wishes to Paul for great weather, even better health, and a fantastic shot at achieving his dream. Hope you and your family are doing well.

  2. Gird me with the strength of Thy steadfast hills,

    The speed of Thy streams give me!

    In the spirit that calms, with the life that thrills,

    I would stand or run for Thee.

    Let me be Thy voice, or Thy silent power,

    As the cataract, or the peak, —

    An eternal thought, in my earthly hour,

    Of the living God to speak!
    -Lucy Larcom 1885

    Godspeed, Paul – from a friend of Rafael’s in NY.
