Climbers train in the Khumbu Icefall at the foot of the Western Cwm!

Today we woke up to fresh powder on our Trango 3 tents and a bright sun in the sky before heading up for icefall training at the foothills of the Western Cwm. All of the team members checked their harnesses, crampons, carabiners, and other technical gear as a group before making our first journey into the icefall to train. The team did very well and will continue to train as a team over the next week. Our strong sherpa team will leave in the early morning to do a carry up to Camp 1 with gear and food. The climbing team will begin their first rotation up Mt. Everest within the week. We are all very excited and look forward to continuing our journey to the top of the world!
