Mission Saipal: RMI Guide Hannah Smith & Team Leave Base Camp, Change Objective

Sometimes you find yourself in a place you didn’t expect. One of those places is on the side of a grassy hill in Western Nepal squished in a tent with three other people sharing your snacks. We decided to leave Base Camp and try to go up over a col to another valley to attempt to climb a peak. It turns out our eyes for the mountains are bigger than the desire and fitness of the team. We started too late. We took too long to get to the pass. And we found ourselves entering steep grassy terrain with consequences on both sides as night time crept in. We were not going to get to the valley below. It’s been a long day. We decided to find the flattest spot, which is not flat at all, and put up the tents. The conditions aren’t ideal, with no water or snow to make water. But with all that has happened today, you find the fun and happiness in the little things, like sharing snacks with your friends and eating a hard boiled egg.

We will see what happens tomorrow,
RMI Guide Hannah Smith

Well I love your attitudes! You should get a reward for finding the positive in every day. Keep on chugging. I hope the snacks hold out.
