The morning wasn't as good as we had hoped. The wind is still a main character
in this performance and by 6AM I had a call from the Sherpa team saying it was
quite shaky up there. They asked for advice- what to do? But I left them to
make the decision as they were the ones who were exposed on the mountain.
Fortunately the wind speed dropped hours later, so now we can say : Camp 2 is
By 5pm the boys called to confirm they had made camp 2, set a tent, dropped
all the gear and returned to C1. They are all fine now and tomorrow we will
met them at C1 to spend a night. The next day, weather permitting we will
spend a night at C2, as our final aclimatization rotation.
As we discussed our plans, we headed towards the end of the valley for a walk,
following the East Glacier valley. We went to the very bottom of the blue iced
terrain. It was a great walk, and we took good pictures of it. Dimitry carried
his big camera and made us feel like models, directing us and telling us how
to pose etc. A true artist we all say.
Everybody is asleep now and in a while the bell will ring to call everyone for
We leave tomorrow to C1, it is confirmed. Please send us energy, the wind is
blowing East, so it will take a whole turn on the globe, but believe me, good
feelings always reach our camps.
11 May -
It's been three days since we returned from the high lands and we are all
eager to climb again. Wind held us at ABC for an extra night. It wasn't bad,
but strong enough to ruin a good rest at high camps which we need in order to
complete the second rotation.
Our Sherpas left for C1 this morning and tomorrow the aim is to establish C2.
There are good puffy clouds they indicate the weather will stay good for a few
days, so we want to take the opportunity to do as much as we can.
The summit push is closer and closer and we have a good team. Please send us
as much energy as you can, we have a positive felling trap right at the
entrance of the camp, and we squeeze it into the tea every morning.
