Mt. Everest Expedition: Crampons On

This morning, feeling rested, refreshed and blessed by our Puja… We set out for a “hike” in the lower reaches of the Khumbu Icefall.  Each of us felt excited to finally be geared up and clawing our way over minor ice obstacles, not to mention stepping over crevasses once again.  Seems like we’ve been on a lot of pretty trails lately, but today it was good to be climbing, even if for just a warm up.  We went up about an hour, the consensus was that we’d reached close to 18,000 ft, but we stopped just before the “popcorn” section of the Icefall where the risk ramps up a bit.  Back down to camp we came, stopping off for a cyber break, of course, in a safe place where we were finding the all-important 3G signal out of Gorak Shep for our smartphones.

Lunch was perfect as usual, but the afternoon weather had us mostly hiding in tents, reading and napping.  We can hear big wind above and the sky is now fully clouded and turbulent.

Best regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

Mark, the market is responding well to your climb.  It might even surpass you.  May both entities, animate and inanimate continue their upward trend ! 

PS We watch the pictures carefully.  You are eating better than we are.
