Hiking and acclimatizing around Base Camp

The Team climbed up to 18,700 ft this morning on an acclimatization hike to Pumori Camp 1 just across the Khumbu Glacier from Base Camp. A little cold, cloudy and some wind, but otherwise beautiful. Everest was in the clouds but lots of other peaks were in view today. Our entire Sherpa team made it up and back to Camp 2 on their first carry up through the icefall. Back in Base Camp now enjoying a quiet afternoon. Photo of Trudi and Bryan up at our high point today!
