Mt. Everest: Icefall Practice Day

Seth here at Everest Basecamp.  It seems like the weather has fallen into a pattern of windy one day, calm the next.  Yesterday we had high winds and a few inches of snow.  Today when we awoke it was calm and sunny.  We took to the glacier in the morning to practice crossing ladders in preparation for heading through the Khumbu Icefall.  Crossing a ladder is definitely not the hardest thing we’ll do on this trip but mentally it can be challenging to stand over a 100+ foot deep crevasse.  That’s why we practice down low before entering the Icefall.

The practice session went well and now that we’re comfortable with the component of tackling the Icefall, it shouldn’t be more than a few days before we head up to Camp 1.
