Justin Merle reports by sat phone that Peter, Doug, Billy, Chewang, and Nima Karma moved up to Camp 2 today, while Justin and Mark moved up to Camp 1. The route to Camp 2 is mainly rock climbing, along the ridge, punctuated but the “Yellow Tower” which requires a short near vertical pitch to get around it. Camp 2 is a Classic, right on the ridge crest! The plan for tomorrow is to move to Camp 2.7.
