Finally the three days of continuous snowfall have eased and we can make a push up the hill. The southerly winds which brought the high humidity over the himalayan chain from the lingering monsoon in India, have now become more westerly, bringing colder but clearer weather.
Tomorrow we’ll move to camp 1, although we expect it to be hard work ploughing through the deep fresh snow. From there we’ll load carry to camp 2 at 6800 metres where we’ll sleep a night before descending to rest before the final summit push.
Back in a few days.
