Jon Griffith and Sherpa Tenji climbed through the Khumbu Icefall yesterday, on the first part of their Everest-Lhotse link-up. Today, the pair have been resting at Camp 2 and preparing camera equipment for the live video stream of their climb. Tomorrow morning (May 23) they will ascend the Lhotse face to reach Camp 4 at the South Col.

Live from Everest Base Camp! Follow Sherpa Tenji as he attempts to link up both Everest and Lhotse without the use of supplemental oxygen. Cameraman Jon Griffith will be supporting him on his climb – follow them both as they bring you Live Streams over the next few days from the climb. Wish them luck!
