Up in Camp 1

Manoj, our Sherpa team and I had a spectacular morning in the icefall today.  Conditions coming up were OK, although we encountered lots of deep fresh snow at Camp 1 here.  We made it up, although we were not moving too quickly through the Icefall.

After a very hot, sunny morning, now we’re now finding ourselves in lightly falling snow. We plan to spend tonight and tomorrow night here at Camp 1, before moving up to Camp 2 to spend a night on the 26th.
