Mike checked in from Camp 1 today. “All is well up here at Camp 1. The team was strong today and will hike to the base of the ice cliff in the morning to stretch their legs. The following day, the plan is to head for Camp 2 if weather permits.” The weather forecast has a little precipitation for the team to keep their eyes on over the next few days. We are watching the monsoon retreat right now and will likely see a little spike in wind to help move it out of the region.
The Tibet Trek woke up to overcast skies and light snow at Rongbuk. After stretching their legs and touring the Monastery, the team jumped in the 4 X 4 and headed to Shigatse. They will be up early to head back to Lhasa!
