We have another video update from Simone Moro and Ueli Steck today with the two climbers checking in from Everest. From the sounds of things, the climb is going well thus far as they have been up to Camp 2 already, spent a couple of nights there acclimatizing and then returned to BC for a break. This is the first time these two very talented alpinists have climbed together, so they are still getting to know one another and finding out how they will best work together. According to Ueli, that process is going well and they are in sync in their approach to the mountain.
The video also includes some nice shots of the Khumbu Icefall and other parts of the trek up to Camp 2. Good stuff from our friends at EpicTV.
