Up to Camp 1 Tomorrow!

Returning from Camp 1 while acclimatizing today!

The team acclimatized one last time today before they plan to move up to Camp 1 tomorrow. Spirits are high and the team enjoyed a good meal while relaxing this evening! Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester, checks in from Manaslu base camp:

Hello! This is Terray calling in for the 2022 Madison Mountaineering Manaslu (8156m/26,759ft) expedition – it’s September 17th.

Today our second wave of climbers, Becks and Chase, acclimatized by hiking up to lower Camp 1 (5700m/18,700ft) and back down to base camp (4859m/15,944ft). Then we had dinner – hamburgers with strawberry cake afterward, and we’re just relaxing watching Wedding Crashers.

Tomorrow in the afternoon, we plan to move on up to Camp 1.

So, all is well here at Manaslu and we’ll be in touch!
