Team has made a carry and a move to C1 and then made a carry up close to high camp yesterday. Time for a break. Plan normally is to get gear at or near high camp, return to C1 and then get in a rest day. That’s exactly what’s happening today. Forecast is reasonably promising and regardless, you can only push so hard. Rest today and prep gear, eat, drink and be as ready as you can be for that final push. Weather permitting, push to high camp tomorrow and then try to summit the next morning. High camp is not the place to rest in good weather.
