It was great to hear the sweet sound of the Satellite phone ringing and Mike on the other end letting us know, “All is Well.” Mike said the camp looks great and there is a light snow coming down. According to the weather forecast, they should expect a few afternoon flurries for the next week as the monsoon finishes up its business. The Climbers and Trekkers had new obstacles to contend with during today’s trek but after the introductions at IC, it seems like the Yaks were willing to share the trail.
The Team will take the next couple days familiarizing themselves with ABC (18,500’) as well as their climbing gear again. Next big activity for the Team will be the Puja Ceremony and, by my calendar, it looks like the 14th will likely be the day!
In Mike’s words, “We are ready to go climbing!”
