the weather has been cool and dry, with nights below freezing. No appreciable snow has fallen and it has been windy. Although today was perfect and sunny and warm , with excellent views of the Everest Himal all around. There is less snow this year, and the surrounding hillsides are surprisingly dry. More later. Yours Sincerely from Daniel Mazur and all of us from SummitClimb.com
