35º Day of the 10 Years of
Brazil on Everest Expedition
Base Camp (5,400 m) / Camp 2
Start of the second climb.
Irivan an I are now
comfortably installed in our tent at camp 2, at 6,400 meters of altitude.
The lack of wind and sun by
the end of the afternoon left us now, at 17h45, with a nice temperature of
7.4ºC outdoors and 17.5ºC inside the tent, but in no more than 15 minutes the
Sun is going to set behind Nuptse and it will be very cold.
Today we got up at seven
hours to get from base camp to here, a climb with no rush and a strong sun.
We arrived at camp 2 at 13h30, along with the three Spanish and the Italian
who is also part of our expedition, our training is optimal and this way we
feel less lonely on this gigantic Everest.
Today we were very scared on
the Icefall, when we were in the middle of the climb that you see in the
picture, a big block of ice, at least 15 meters high, was shattered beside us.
We went running upwards, fearing that the block where it was leaning would
also come down. But it was just a scare.
We will have more news
A big hug.
