Benegas Brothers Expeditions

Thrilled to be passing on the great news that all the Everest17 team are at C3 resting already!

They moved up from C2 to C3 in under 4 hours, a ridiculously good time, and are reporting that the winds allowed them to climb in down suits (a good chance to get used to them!) but without getting too hot! We all know that this can be a long hot slog with lines, so sounds like they had an exceptional climb up!

Meanwhile our Sherpa team is at a windy South Col finalizing our Camp 4, altho they will return to C2 later today to rest. Said winds are due to die down later today, and we keep on with weather weather weather forecasts at BC to inform the team twice daily… Meanwhile the 24th overnight and 25th morning are still looking great for us!

CONGRATS everyone, the 3M team is climbing STRONG!


Yes, the climb to C3 is steep! Not being in a line and not being too hot really helps!


Plenty of snow (and ice!)
