A windy carry up to Camp 3 for Team Be Like Bamboo before returning to eat and rest up for the move up in the morning

Hello friends, family, and loved ones. This is Brian with Team Be Like Bamboo.

Last night was very, very windy and we woke up this morning with plans to go up to our Camp 3, at the base of the Polish Glacier. And we just delayed our departure a little bit; we left at 10:30am and we did that load carry today and people were pretty tired. It was a windy day and with a lot of elevation gain for folks and people were a bit tired but they did well. And we came back down to camp and ate a good dinner, and we’re resting up tonight and looking forward to moving up to our Camp 3 tomorrow, which will be at the base of the Polish Glacier. So everyone’s in good spirits and things are going well.

That’s it for now.
