Today we had a pleasant rest day at Camp 2. After breakfast we relaxed and played cards, some members took naps and then after lunch we did a dress rehearsal for tomorrow’s climb up the Lhotse face to Camp 3. If the conditions are good we will touch Camp 3 at about 23,500ft and then return to Camp 2. The winds seem to have calmed here at Camp 2 but we can still hear the jet stream high above.
After lunch we were called to help on a rescue at the base of the Lhotse face where a Sherpa from another team had fallen. Many teams were on the scene to help and as we loaded him into the Helicopter that thankfully arrived at the scene he was in stable condition. We hope to hear good news of his condition soon! When accidents do happen here it is great to have the amount of resources and people that are here on the South side to pitch in and help!
Thanks for following along, our team is doing great, and looking forward to climbing up to Camp 3 tomorrow.
