Everest BC Trek & Lobuche Climb: Dale & Team Enjoy Beautiful Himalaya Views to Gorak Shep
Posted by: Christina Dale
High winds blew cold snow in our faces the entire three-hour trek to Gorak Shep today. Buffs up, gortex layers on, and hands balled up in our gloves gave us some protection but it still leads to chapped cheeks and tired climbers. We met up with the other RMI team, led by the famous Casey Grom, for some tea and jokes along the trail. They are heading down to the land of hot showers and warm evenings as we head up to Everest Base Camp tomorrow. Some of our team took the afternoon to rest and relax while others braved the winds and hiked up Kala Patar (18,500 feet). We had beautiful views of Nuptse and the Khumbu Glacier but Everest didn’t want to show its true height to us today. Hopefully this wind slows and we have an easier trek into basecamp tomorrow.
