Couple nights in camp 2 and reachout camp 3
After spending a couple nights in camp 2 and reaching camp 3 at 7200m our team finished their acclimatization.
On 28 April our team headed up to camp 1 at 6000m. Our travel to Camp 1 was relatively smooth and easy. We left base camp at 2am and followed the labyrinth off crevasses, ice chunks, ladders through the icefall. The route through the icefall was relatively easy compared to other years. The whole team reached camp 1 in good time. After spending the night in Camp 1 we reached Camp 2 at 6400m the following day.
Our staff did an excellent job installing camp 2 on the glacier moraine. For such a high camp its actually very comfortable; our Sherpa cooks did everything they could to make us happy and our cozy dome tent was warm enough to play a couple off games off cards.
After an acclimatization hike to the bottom off the Lhotse face we ascended the face the following day. Although it was a snowy day it was a good not to warm/cold to climb.
Now the whole team is resting in Base Camp and some off us even went down to Namche Bazar to breath some thicker air!
So everything is going smooth without any major problems so far!
