Mt. Everest Expedition: Clear Skies Then More Snow

The day started out sparkling and blue… A welcome change from the weather of the past week, but by early afternoon it was back to overcast and snow flurries.  Word was that those trying to travel between Camp One and Two were encountering waist deep snow and that as much as another meter had fallen on C1 since we left it two days ago.  It hasn’t been normal in recent years to get so much snow in April, but we choose to look at things optimistically, and we hope that some of the snow sticks up high to make travel a bit safer on the Lhotse Face and on summit day above the South Col.
That is all a bit far off today though.  We are still taking it easy and resting up for the next -all important- push up the mountain.  (Any push up this mountain is all important to those of us doing the pushing)

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
