Word’s come from Nepal that two local women and their team won’t be attempting to climb to base camp on Mount Everest in the wake of the earthquake. Ed Hammond, via the Everest Trek 2015 Facebook page says he’s heard from from Dream Team founder Shawn Dawson that the team, including Kelly Hammond and Brandy Van Gelder, will not try to reach base camp at 18,000 ft at this time. The team will however, try to make a trip at some point to the Himalayas. All members of the team are safe and thankful for the support they are getting back home.
