Day 2 at Camp 2

The weather was beautiful up and down the Khumbu Icefall today.  At the top of the Icefall the climbers had a leisurely morning before taking an acclimatization hike up the Western Cwm.  Everyone enjoyed a nice meal in our Camp 2 dining tent and they will be heading to bed soon so that they will be fresh for an early morning trip back down the Icefall to Base Camp.


Down at the base of the Icefall we have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather as well.  Laundry was at the top of the list, followed by some showers, and then we went to work polishing up camp for the team’s arrival tomorrow afternoon.  We also set up a slack line, a sort of thin balance beam made from climbers webbing. It’s a nice way to take a break from the camp chores J
