Mt. Everest 2010 #27 - Visit Camp 2 - 6400m

Gabcast! Mt. Everest 2010 #27

Namaste everbody, from Camp 1.

Today is April 19th, Monday, and what we did today is we went to Camp 2, for an acclimatization little hike.

We got up at 5:00 in the morning, it's still pretty cold, what we didn't want was to be on the Western Cwm for too long during the heat of the day. It took me three hours to get to Camp 2, which is actually pretty slow, but I'm a bit dehydrated and I don't think I've been eating quite enough, all things that I will correct.

Made it to Camp 2, and then we came back, and then we've just kind of been lazing aroung all afternoon. Domhnall came up this morning from Base Camp, showed up at Camp 1 about 11:00 I think, maybe a little bit earlier, I'm not quite sure. So he and I have been chatting, the plan is the group is going to go down tomorrow, there's a possibility I may be able to go to Camp 2, so watch the spot, and have a listen tomorrow.

Thanks again for listening, and I'll talk to you tomorrow. Bye.
