IMG Leader Eben Reckord reports that the team had an adventurous trip to A4 Base Camp (15,550 ft/4740m), accompainied by donkeys and porters. Sounds like they had to practice their cowboy skills too, helping the local herders keep the critters going in the right direction!
The sherpa team already had the BC all set up for their arrival, and they were glad to finally get there. The plan is to take a rest day tomorrow, then go for a hike the following day to recon the route to Camp 1. Weather has been good and the snow that fell last week has been cooking, so the conditions are improving.
