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.
