Today we had breakfast and then headed out on a hike through the Moraine to the ice to do some training. We set up a fixed line to practice ascending, descending, and rappelling. Everyone did a great job reviewing some of the necessary skills to climb Cho Oyu.
In the afternoon, we had a meeting to discuss with most of the teams what gear and man power was available for fixing the lines on the route. As usual our own Lakpa Rita took the leadership role of coming up with a plan with the help of many other Sirdars from other teams.
The fixing of the route will start tomorrow up to Camp 2. We will be taking a full rest day tomorrow for some much needed rest and recovery time and then will head up to camp 1 the day after.
I’ll send a few pictures from yesterday and today after this message.
Thanks for following along, it’s great to be here on Cho Oyu!
