Camp 2 rest and acclimatization day for Everest Team

Hello Everyone, Today we had a nice rest day and short acclimatization hike near the base of the Lhotse face. We got close to 22,000ft today and everyone is doing great. In the afternoon we played a lot of cards while some just rested. We just finished up a fine dinner cooked by Ang Tserring and Ang Chhiri and we are headed off to bed for an early wake up. Tomorrow we will have breakfast at 5am and then head down to Basecamp at 6am. We should arrive to Basecamp around 11am. We are looking forward to the thick air at 17,500ft in Basecamp! Thanks for following along! Ben Jones Expedition Leader More info about Climbing Mount Everest and Everest Base Camp Trek.
