Mt. Everest:  The Team Goes for an Acclimatization Walk Reaching Just Below the Lhotse Face

This is Dave Hahn calling down from Advanced Base Camp, 21,300’.  A good day for Seth, Dan, and myself and Lam Babu and Yubaraj up here at ABC.  Seemed like it was going be a little stormy this morning.  There were clouds around, but we ended up with a pretty good sunshine, pretty calm conditions down here in the valley.  We went for a late acclimatization walk up to about 21,800’, close to the base of the Lhotse Face.  That was a right move for us anyway today, a little light activity on our first day at Advanced Base Camp.  And then resting until noon.  We can’t do too much differently right now, the route up the Lhotse Face is not fully established yet.  There has been a few unforeseen delays in getting that route fixed.  We’re okay taking it easy.  We have hiking plans for tomorrow as well.  And working this acclimatization round the best we can.  That is all for tonight.  Talk to you tomorrow.

Great going, Dave. Hope the weather holds.  Can’t wait to hear about the brawl at 26,000 ft that was in the news today.

Stay safe,

Chuck
