A great day of training for the team!
After 50mph wind gusts last night, we have broken into a solid, high pressure weather pattern.
We spent 4 hours today training on the glacier, practicing our technical skills for the icefall. Everyone did great!
Damian was up high today helping the icefall doctors finish the route, and steep exit out of the icefall- they were at it for 12 hours. There is still some tweaking to be done, but the route is complete to the icefall exit.
Deep snow is making everything slower, and more work for the icefall doctors. Establishing camp 1 and 2 will take longer than usual, but there is plenty of time! Safety is first!
All the best from the team
