Everest Base Camp Trek: Grom & Team Reach Base Camp

Elevation: 17,575'

The team safely arrived at Basecamp after a climb up Kala Patar.  New altitude records for some!  The Easter bunny must have come through camp because there were little chocolate eggs left around camp when we arrived (thanks Tucker).  Most everyone is feeling better and enjoying the wonderful cooking of our BC cook Kumar.  The team spent the day enjoying the views and a little exploring of the camp.  Hot showers were had by all!

Tomorrow we’ll make the trek back down to Pheriche and hopefully cross paths with RMI’s Everest climbers.
