Updated from www.EverestTibetNews.com - Hi this is David O’Brien from the North Col. We left abc earlier today for our summit push aiming for the morning of the 23rd. There are many teams here now so it’s likely to be a busy summit but the forecast is good . The snow was blowing when we got here but it’s calm now so hopefully we’ll have a restful night.

360 Expeditions
 · #Everest2019. The team are now at the North Col. 7,100m. It was heavily snowing on arrival but on the plus, everyone arrived in good shape having set a steady pace. 
Tomorrow looks like the wind will whipping around so little letup for the team. They plan to leave C2 early doors. At C2 7,500m they will hunker down and rest. O2 is ready for the team tomorrow @3 liters p/min. Sleep on O2 @2 liters p/min. 
There is a large Chinese team switching to the same summit plan we have which wasn't their plan yesterday. The route could be busier than hoped.

http://www.alanarnette.com/blog/2019/05/19/everest-2019-weekend-update-may-19/ -- Alan Arnette -- Everest 2019 : Weekend Update May 19

A big week last week with 200+ summits across the Himalayas but 11 deaths.
The focus now shifts to #Everest2019 with over 700 climbers going for the top on both sides. The big question revolves around the location of the jet stream and its high winds. As Chris Tomer says it is "wobbly."

Hi there. 2 days ago starting at 5am, I did another successful hike up the Skyline Trail. WooHoo! And that was Skyline #61! I went with Patricia, Doreen and Nancy. It was almost a picture-perfect day, weather-wise. Slightly humid and a bit warm early on. Nancy never went all the way until that day! Congratulations to her. I will try to do it again this Tuesday, weather-permitting. The desert will soon to heat up, therefore Skyline will not be possible until the cool weather returns in the Fall. What a bummer! Life goes on...

A POLAR OPPOSITE EXPERIENCE!!!
.
While our #Everest2019 team rest at ABC (they all got there in GREAT time) our focus turns to our team #Jordan. Currently below sea level enjoying rich oxygenated air and the intense heat !!!
.
Good luck team.. (photo of team below) ..You will have a ball. This is what they will be experiencing:

• They will be captivated daily by the rocky desert landscape while being challenged on a 100km trek
• Trekking with the Bedouins and their camels across the sandy desert and rocky hamada in a world which time forgot, exploring lush canyons with their ever-changing shades of red and orange filled with refreshing pools of water
• Feasting around a fire while learning the art of playing traditional desert sand games. (often with dried camel poo)
• Falling asleep under a blanket of stars.
• They will learn how to kill gut skin and prepare the goat for traditional celebration feats.
• Spending time losing themselves in ancient Petra. The city that’s been impossibly carved out from the rock before enjoying Petra by candle light.
• Spending an incredible day on a camel in the famous wadi Rum before a night of glamping in the heart of the desert.
• Finishing off with a full day of luxury and wonder floating in the incredible Dead Sea before going home having made some new lifelong friends

Tempted... We have a few places left on our October 2019 trip.

 had what will be in my top ten favorite Skyline hikes today. EllenMarilynDennis and I started at the Museum Trail in Palm Springs at about 5:00 AM in cool but humid conditions. I have never seen so many wildflowers up there! It started raining at Florian’s and continued to rain all the way to the Upper Tram Station. When we got to Grubbs notch the wind sounded like a locomotive barreling through the trees. Then the rain turned into some kind of frozen stuff. Brrr... Once we were in the tram station we changed to drier clothes that we had the insight to bring in our backpacks. We got a ride back to our cars from Hilde, an old friend that I bump into at various places from time to time. Then we enjoyed a hot meal at Las Casuelas. Thanks, crew, for a memorable day. I’m going back up there again tomorrow to take more flower pictures. Ha ha, just kidding, I was totally done in when we got to the top! My next Skyline may be next fall.

Image result for images of iron to baldy traverse

https://www.meetup.com/Hiking-Coachella-Valley/events/260320964/  --  Iron to Baldy Traverse - May 25

Distance: 16 miles +-

Elevation Gain: 10,000' +-

We will meet at 5:45 AM on Bridge to Nowhere Trail Head Parking and start the hike at 6:00 AM sharp. This is a shuttle hike and one or more volunteer drivers will be needed to meet two others at Manker Flats by 5:15 AM for the shuttle.

This is likely a little tougher hike than C2C. The San Antonio Ridge will be a class 3 and I would consider a very small portion of it to be class 4. If scrambling and exposure is not your thing, this hike is not for you. We need to hike to Iron about in 4 hours. We will be aiming to finish the hike by 6:00 PM but bring a headlight. I will provide detailed info closer to the event day. I will add people from the wait-list.

I did it! I climbed Mt Whitney! 14,496ft elevation, the highest peak in the lower 48 states. Last week I set out on a journey with an incredible group of Gonzaga alumni and it was life changing. Carrying a 50lbs pack and battling altitude sickness, I was able to accomplish my goal with the constant support of my team and God keeping me safe. This is the most challenging thing I’ve ever put my body through, both mentally and physically, and it was so worth it! Not only was I able to summit, but I was part of a team that ended up saving the lives of 3 fellow climbers (not in our group) that ended with a successful helicopter rescue. With everything going on in my life right now I needed this trip. I needed a win. And now that it’s over I feel more confident and refreshed than ever. Feeling so blessed for this experience
