IMG guide Mike Hamill reports that it is clear and sunny this morning at ABC and the team is all set for the Camp 2 rotation. Weather forecast is good for the next few days. They are heading for Camp 1 today and then up to Camp 2 tomorrow, where they hope to spend a night up there (at over 7100 meters / 23,300 feet). 23K will be a new highpoint for most of the team members, and sleeping up at that altitude requires a good foundation of acclimatization. The team has now been in Tibet for three weeks, and their acclimatization response should really be kicking in now. A good Camp 2 rotation now will set them up well for the summit bids.
