Our Cho Oyu and Tibet Trek teams are enjoying a “bluebird day” on Cho Oyu. Phunuru and the rest of our Sherpa team are feeling great and have all climbed to Camp 1. Their goal for the day was to establish Camp 1 today so the team can move in tomorrow. Judging from the photos Phunuru sent back they have certainly established it, and in true fashion. The Eureka tents are all lined up! From the photos it also looks like early reports from Mike were spot on, plenty of snow at Camp 1.
Back at ABC, Mike, Dallas and the team continued to acclimatize. The task for the day was to sort through gear and prepare for the move to Camp 1 in the morning. They double-checked and rigged harnesses, did some training and, on a perfect day like today, let the sun bake the sleeping bags and down suits.
All is well!
