Up to Camp 2!

The whole team is now here in Camp 2 after a windy trip up through the Western Cwm.

It was a beautiful day, but with a cold wind as we moved up to 21,500 ft. Our Camp 2 is located just below the SW Face of Everest, and is just about the highest camp in this area. Everyone rallied today and are all doing well. Now we will wait for a few days to help our bodies acclimatize. We are planning to be back at BC on the 28th.

So far the weather has been outstanding, with more good weather on the horizon. High winds are forecast for a few days, followed by some clouds, but overall everything looks good. I've attached some photos through the icefall and just below Camp 1.
