Base Camp 1

First carry to Camp I

The team completed a carry to Camp I (16,000 ft) today. Now they are back to the comfort of Base Camp and will rest tomorrow there. They plan to move to Camp I on Monday! Everyone is well and getting used to the altitude.

This stage of the climb is very important, because it is when the climbers complete the acclimatization process. From here they will do carries to higher altitudes, then sleeping at lower altitude, and just then moving to the next camp, where they will rest, carry again, then move up. Patience is the key.

We attach a picture of Base Camp taken in previous trip.

We will keep you posted.
