Off to Camp 3 Tomorrow!

Everything is set for our first trip to Camp 3 at 24,000 ft. Today we climbed to the base of the Lhotse Face at around 22,500 ft.. Tomorrow we'll head up the blue ice of Lhotse Face to Camp 3. All reports indicate that the Face is fixed well with both up and down ropes. Now we'll see if we can get some good weather, as it has been on and off snow and wind here in camp today. All our Sherpas are carrying loads to the South Col at 26,000 ft tomorrow. So we will all get up and out of here early in the morning. Our Sherpas plan on leaving Camp 2 at 1 am, and we are hoping to leave at 5 am. Standby for tomorrow's report!
