We ventured into the Khumbu Ice Fall today to get a taste of what’s ahead tomorrow when start our first 5-day rotation to through the Ice Fall and onto Camps 1 & 2.
We went in about the third of the way before heading back to Base Camp for a late lunch.
In the afternoon, we had a couple of meetings regarding packing and what items to bring up the mountain. We also got to choose our “energy” snacks for the next 5 days.
It’s an early bed time tonight as wake-up call is at 3 AM, breakfast at 3:30 and departure at 4 AM.Next Post: Day 18: Climbing up to Camp 1 Previous Post: Day 16: Acclimatization Hike to Pumori Base Camp
