Today we had our Puja ceremony with our entire climbing team including six climbers on the Everest permit, three also on the Lhotse Permit, and all of our climbing Sherpa who will go with us to the summit.
We received blessing from the Buddhist Lama to begin our climb which starts with the Khumbu Ice Fall. Tomorrow our Sherpa climbing team will carry equipment and climbing supplies to our camp 2. The following day, the first of our climbers will begin their ascent to camps 1 and 2.
It was a very special day and great fun with dancing, singing, and plenty of good cheer!
