Namaste friends, family & loved ones,
We trekked down valley to Namche Bazaar. Oxygen and hot showers have us all feeling great.
To summarize the last few days, I’ll start at the beginning. From Chukkung we trekked to Island Peak Base Camp and arrived in time for lunch. We trained on the use of cow tails, descenders, and ascenders until dark.
The next morning we continued our training above base camp working on our ascending and rappelling techniques.
We tucked into oursleeping bags early so we could rise at 1am for our summit push.
Scrambling up to the glacier by dawn we put on our crampons as the sun warmed our numb toes.
That’s when things got interesting. …
More to come tomorrow!
All my best,
