Austin and Harry checked in from Pangboche this morning to let us know that everyone is doing fantastic. No headaches and perfect weather. The Team had a nice trek from Tengboche (12,600 ft) to Pangboche (13,100 ft) today. This is not a long day but we gain a bit more altitude and start breathing hard.
A highlight of the day was pulling into Pangboche and being welcome to long time IMG Sherpa Guide Ang Pasang’s house. Ang Pasang is a legend. He has an incredible memory that stretches all the way to the early 80’s with expedition experience. If you get an opportunity to be around Ang Pasang and hear climbing stories, you have to take the opportunity.
After lunch, the Team walked to the Lodge where they will stay for the night. From the common room, the Team will be able to look right up hill at Ama Dablam.
All is well in the Khumbu Valley!
