Conditions are beautiful on Mt. Everest now
No word yet from local climber David Lien on his bid to climb Mt. Everest, but climbers there are having success. Yesterday, a team of Polish climbers, including Polish Playboy Bunny Martyna Wojciechowska, made it to the top.
The weather is calm on the summit today, with an expected high of 31 degrees. There's snow on the way this weekend, so hopefully if David is climbing, he'll be done by then.
Not everything has gone well on the mountain this year.
In April, a British man froze to death. Another man fell off the ridge Tuesday and is feared dead, but hasn't been found. To follow the latest summit news, visit www.everestnews.com
