Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
Super big day for the climbing team. We were up at 4:00 am to climb the East peak of Lobuche. We reviewed technical skills yesterday so we’d be prepared for over one thousand feet of fix line on the peak.
Clear skies gave way to clouds but we got some great views before thing turned gray.
We not only climbed the mountain we were able to descend all the way to Dugla, another 2,000 feet lower than our base camp.
This will set us up for a relatively easy day trekking to Chukung tomorrow. Everyone is tired but in great spirits
All my best, Vern Tejas
