We made it to ABC (Advanced Basecamp) today! Sorry for not cybercasting yesterday but we are all doing well. Yesterday we hiked to intermediate camp (17,400ft) and spent the night. We got some snow showers in the afternoon but it was mostly a nice day. Today we hiked up the road followed by our yaks full of all our gear to arrive at ABC at 18,700ft. It was a wet and cold afternoon with snow showers starting right before we arrived but we were able to keep people warm while we set up camp at our friend’s (IMG) camp for a couple hours. It’s nice to have gracious and helpful friends up here on the mountain. We are just finishing up dinner and are heading off to bed soon. Tomorrow we will rest and get camp fully setup and organized for the next few weeks of our climb. A few people are feeling the altitude and a bit of a cold is going around but spirits are high and we will be on the men’s with some rest here at ABC.
I’ll send some pictures of the last few days, tomorrow.
Thanks for following along!
