They spent the day at Everest Base Camp enjoying the comforts of tent living and going over some climbing/mountaineering skills in the ice nearby camp. Tomorrow David and Alisha will start back down the valley and towards Island Peak for their climb, while Scott and Jacob acclimatize to the high altitude tent city they will base out of for the next month and a half. They were welcomed into base camp by our amazing team of Sherpa who have been establishing the camp on the rocky moraines of the lower Khumbu glacier. We have a big comfortable dome tent for dining and hanging out with carpeted floors, heat, solar powered lights and a coffee grinder for a fresh cup in the morning. It’s been a bit snowy the last few days, and that is expected to continue for another day or so before the clear skies come back over the Himalaya.
Here’s Jacob from Base Camp!
