25 April 2013 -
WE are all safe and sound in ABC at 6400m (13,321 ft.).
Yesterday we did our rope practice on the ice towers near our camp. Everybody
did very well and is also a good test to see if you are ready to go any
higher. We practiced ice climbing, rappelling, overcoming nuts in ropes, etc.
Today we walked to crampon point and some members even trekked to the start of
the fixed ropes of the north col. Our strong Sherpa team went up to the col to
check out conditions for us and pitch our camp.
Probably tomorrow and the day after most members will reach the col and this
will finish the first stage of our acclimatization.
