Ang Jangbu checked in to let us know that Team 1 has returned to EBC for some well-deserved rest. The team made great time coming down from Camp 2. Moving efficiently downhill is an important skill when climbing any mountain and the team is proving they have trained well for the climb.
Team 2 had a casual breakfast and then set off for a hike towards the base of the Lhotse Face. This is a great way to get your heartrate up and help yourself with the acclimatization process. Team 2 will depart Camp 2 early tomorrow morning to head back down to EBC.
Ang Jangbu also has 15 Sherpas carrying from EBC to Camp 2 today, putting them in position to start building Camp 3 and carrying loads to the upper mountain while the weather holds.
Continued good weather on Mount Everest and all is well!
