Shishapangma above ABC

Puja

Yaks to ABC

Heading up

September 19, 2009

Shishapangma base camp

After a great puja ceremony yesterday we are itching to get onto the mountain. All have coughs and colds but the weather is excellent and not to be wasted.

Neil made an equipment carry to camp 1 today and will take a rest day tomorrow. Most likely Kinga and I will climb to camp 1 tomorrow and sleep there before carrying some equipment to deposit at camp 2.

Attached are a few pics. One of the yaks en route to ABC, 2nd is the mountain with ABC at bottom right and the last is of the Puja ceremony.
