Sherpa Tenji and Jon Griffith are attempting the Everest-Lhotse traverse via the South Col route.

The pair have spent four days at Camp 2 in the Western Cwm. On social media, Griffith suggests that the pair are in good physical and mental shape:

We’ve spent 4 days up here now and Tenji has been up to 8000m – he’s proving to be a bit of a machine doing laps up the Lhotse face! Our next rotation takes us up for a night at South Col and our last acclimatization run. We’re both feeling strong and psyched for the traverse.

Hamor and Colibasanu are also attempting the Everest-Lhotse traverse, but via the West Ridge. The pair are currently making their way to 7,000 metres where they will spend the next four to five days acclimatizing.
