At Camp 1

Scott called in this morning to report that they are nestled in at Camp 1. Everyone is doing great and they had a good day traveling up through the Khumbu Icefall.

The team will spend three more nights at Camp 1 and might make a run up to Camp 2 before descending back to Base Camp. This technique is called "climbing high and sleeping low" and enables our climbers to more gradually ease into the rarefied air of the upper mountain.

Listen to the podcast of Scott's call below!
