Leaving BC, visiting Kala Patar

Hello, this is Linden calling, today is April 6th. It was a beautiful morning at Base Camp and after breakfast we started our descent through the Khumbu Glacier back into the morraine and on to Gorak Shep. From there we climbed a little peak called Kala Patar and enjoyed fantastic views of Everest and the Khumbu Glacier. After sitting up there for a while taking in the scenery we began the descent to Gorak Shepa and continued back down the valley to Lobuche. There we met up with the RMI Everest Climbing Team and shared a cup of tea. We continued on to Pheriche where we will spend the night.

Today was a long day and we traveled quite a distance through glaciers and moraine, climbing up to 18,500’ and back down to 17,000’. We are all excited to be heading toward Island Peak and we are looking forward to reaching base camp in a few days.
