Mt. Everest Expedition: Hahn, Waterfall & Team Explore Basecamp

Our second night at the extreme altitude of Everest Basecamp went well.  We are getting used to the thunder of avalanches off the surrounding peaks and the intense cold of morning before the sun finds us in the bottom of this deep valley.  We worked a bit in the morning on getting our gear dialed for climbing.  The afternoon was spent in taking a mellow hike out on the glacier close to basecamp.  At one point we spotted three intrepid white geese cruising North at about 25,000 ft.  We were also keeping our eyes peeled for artifacts on the ice.  Yesterday James and Seth each found crampons from 1962 (as evidenced by the 1962 Indian newspaper I found with them) More teams are arriving each day now, but we are still enjoying having basecamp a little quieter than normal. 

We look forward to our Puja ceremony tomorrow morning wherein we ask the blessing of the mountain gods before taking on the big hill.

Best Regards,

RMI Guide Dave Hahn

The picture of Seth with the rock is a good example of glacier recession. A lot of ice has disappeared.
