Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Coming up in a few hours so it's seven thirty p._m. You know you. I put on my headlamp. I put on my oxygen. I pack my bag. Put boiling water in my thermoses mrs because even boiling water will probably freeze within six to eight hours on the mountain and you set out so i can i connect with my two sherpa and and already so seven thirty. It's actually much earlier than than folks would traditionally leave summit folks would usually leave between nine pm eleven pm <hes> and the leadership saw the crowds and tried to beat them by getting us out early but we weren't the only ones with that idea at seven thirty i looked up and you could already see a trail of headlamps headlamps going up into the fog up towards everest so we set out and at first for the first thirty minutes forty five minutes i got to walk pretty much my own pace but it was sort of around my forty five minute time that iran smack into the queue that has now become so famous you know i couldn't tell how many people we're ahead of me because it was snowing and dark and so i could just see the ten feet that my headlamp illuminated above and behind me but as far as i could. Let's see in front and behind me. It was a line of people like disneyland and it stayed that way all night long and you know at first. It's actually kind of a relief because you know it's a lot of work to climb this mountain with very little oxygen and so you go from step step step two okay. It's kind of nice to have an excuse to take a break and wait and relax a little bit but you know after ten fifteen fifteen twenty minutes of in some cases being completely stopped or in other cases being just much much slower than you would otherwise climb you start to get worried because because a few things happen when you're stuck one you get cold. One of the biggest risks of climbing everest is frostbite. You can be in perfect health and still lose fingers and toes right. It's very easy thing to do and you're standing there and pretty soon within twenty minutes. I was like okay. My fingers are getting real. Cold lose in feeling and a few of my fingers up <hes> shoot. My my toes are getting cold. What do i do now and so you start.
