Today we woke up in Camp 1 (6050m/19,849ft), had a nice breakfast and coffee, and then went for an acclimatization walk about an hour, hour and a half, above camp just partway to Camp 2. We had wonderful views of Everest, Lhotse, and the Nuptse ridge above us. We came back down to Camp 1 and had lunch. It’s really peaceful up here. We’re just about the only party in Camp 1, which is really pleasant.
Looking forward to moving to Camp 2 (6500m/21,325ft) tomorrow! All is well here. We’ll be in touch.
