IMG guide Eben Reckord reports that IMG sherpas Phinjo and Thunang Bote finished fixing to Camp 1 today, while Eben, Emily, and the A4 team ferried loads to the bottom of the buttress.
Tomorrow, if the weather looks OK, they hope to all move up to Camp 1, leaving their cook Pasang Nuri and assistant Sante Tamang to hold down the fort at Base Camp while they are up on the hill.
Eben says everyone in the team is doing well, and getting well acclimatized. They are ready to start climbing!
