The last couple of days we have been resting and relaxing here in Basecamp. We have had some snow showers for the last couple of days but now looks like the sun is breaking through with better weather ahead. We are looking at going back up for our second rotation to culminate with a climb to camp 3 tomorrow night. It’s been great to be back at Basecamp with full appetites, hot showers, wifi, plenty of sleep and the always interesting dinner conversation!
Below are portraits of the guys who put the route through the Khumbu icefall to Camp 1 for all groups trying to climb Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse each season. We are grateful for their hard work installing and maintaining this route for everyone’s safety throughout the entire season!
Talk to you tomorrow,
