Successful day of training in the Khumbu Icefall

Today we went into the Khumbu Icefall and practiced various climbing techniques including fixed line travel, ladder crossing, rappelling, and climbing vertical ice! We had beautiful weather for our training today, and we plan on another productive day of training tomorrow. Tonight we had a wonderful meal prepared by our chef's Gopal & Jenny, the food here at base camp is absolutely outstanding! We've attached a few photos of our recent meals. Everyone is doing great here at Everest base camp!
