We are all back to ABC and were welcomed with a delicious pizza lunch prepared by Gopal. We are doing good, a little tired from a couple nights at the higher elevations but doing well.
Our weather forecast is telling us to expect potentially quite a bit of snow in the next 24 hours so we are preparing the camp for snow. The snow has started now and time will tell how much we get but are hearing of the possibility of up to 1 meter of snow at ABC and a little less higher on the mountain in the next day or two.
While I lead the group down to ABC today, Lakpa Rita left this morning from camp 1 to fix the ropes the rest of the way to camp 2 today and he was successful. Our other four Sherpa’s carried loads of gear to camp 2 for us as well today, so the route is in and we are thankful to have such strong Sherpa’s on our team!
A big thanks to Lakpa, Tserring, Kami, Mingma, and Fur Koncha today for their huge efforts on the mountain today.
Thanks for following,
