IMG guides Eben Reckord and Emily Johnston report that the team is healthy, the weather is improving, and it’s time to go climbing again! Hopefully their patience will be rewarded with a good rotation up high over the next few days.
Today the team climbed to Camp 1, and then Phinjo and Thunang continued on to up to Camp 2 with a load. Up at C2, they dug out the camp, then blasted back down to Camp 1. Tomorrow the plan is for everyone to move up to Camp 2 to sleep. They are hoping to spend a couple nights up at Camp 2 for acclimatization, and get the route established up to Camp 3.
