As Peak and the group were about to start their journey Holly Angelo came to greet them. Later after he heard about Holly's role as a reporter he realized that Josh was mostly going to use Peak to get money because he would be the first-ever 14 year old to make it to the summit. while they were eating a meal made by a cook he scrutinized on everyone to make sure they eat every last bite.
Peak was an amateur because he had never done this before. Sun-jo was selling cigarettes to other Sherpas because it will help them go up the mountain. Holly tells more about her life to Peak and he gets really annoyed with her.
When they got to ABC they put up a flag pole and surrounded it with rocks. It was a geriatric thing that has happened for many years. Then they heard the news that people above had gotten serious cases of HAPE.
Francis was in a Gamow bag looking like he lost his pristine while inside. He had a very bad case of HAPE and he was not going to the summit.
Other hikers were like ramshackle because of how cold they were and the fact they had HAPE
Peak was acting grist while walking around the base camp looking for information about the climb and other important things.
