Mt. Everest: Hahn & Team Reach Pheriche

The RMI Everest climbing team reached Pheriche today.  Our last evening and morning down in the trees of Deboche went well enough and everybody was feeling strong and in good spirits this morning.  We set out in bright sunshine with a big blue sky at 8:30 AM.  Yesterday, in traveling the same trail to reach Pangboche we ended up in a huge yak traffic jam where a steel truss bridge had recently collapsed into the river and a detour needed to be negotiated.  Today, the yaks were elsewhere and the trail was blissfully quiet.  We made pretty good time, cruising along above the North bank of the Imja Khosi while steadily gaining altitude.  The trees were pretty much played out a little above Pangboche at perhaps 13,500 ft and the character of the terrain changed.  We took several short breaks alongside the trail and arrived by noon at Pheriche at 14,000 ft.  Our tea house for the night (and tomorrow night as well) is quite popular, “modern” and spacious… a bit of a contrast from the more low key and traditional place we stayed in at Deboche.  There are at least 75 other people sharing the dining hall and lodge, some are climbers and guides that we know from other mountains, some are trekkers, many are climbing sherpas.  We were all happy to be sitting around a warm stove, indoors, as the clouds rolled in and it got nasty and cold in the late afternoon.  It is far too many people for the capacity of the WiFi system, but we are plenty happy to be connected again at any speed.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
