Video of winds over Lhotse
15:50 p.m. EDT May 8, 2003
Scott Woolums of Adventures International has sent through another superb video. This time he captures high winds from a far - plumes blowing off the top of Lhotse. The last video he sent was from Camp III, 7300m, in the midst of a windstorm. His team is now in the village of Dingboche and relishing in the thicker air. After the pounding they got high on the mountain, the oxygen enriched air and warmness will help boost the team's energy and moral. Scott reports that lots of other teams are down low too right now.

They day after tomorrow the Adventures International crew will head back to base camp and wait for a good weather window to summit, "From there we'll just wait and see what happens. We have lots of time still, and its beginning to look like it may be a late season!"
