1 Rotation Down, 2 To Go

  |   7Summits, Mount Everest   |   2 Comments

We just finished our first rotation. We spent 2 nights at camp 1 and 3 nights at camp 2. We acclimatized pretty well, especially we hiked up to the bottom of the Lotshe face.

It took us about 5hrs from camp 2 to base camp. Feels amazing to finally have a well deserved shower and lots and lots of O2.

We will relax here for a few days, regaining our power and energy before heading of to the 2nd rotation.

We have spent a few days at base camp now. Mostly training, reviewing mountaineering techniques, and staying healthy. We went up 1/3 of the Khumbu today for training and acclimatization and will head for our 1st rotation tomorrow. Most probably our rotation will be 2 nights at camp 1 and 2 nights at camp 2 and touch the bottom of the Lhotse face.

Phereche to Base Camp

  |   7Summits, Mount Everest   |   1 Comment

After our second rest day at base camp we were all strong and headed to Leboche. The trek was steady for the first bit and then a huge incline to the memorial of the people who died while attempting Everest.

This time was different than 4 years ago, I felt different like those people were here to climb the same mountain, they all had plans, families, and things to go back to, unfortunately they didn’t. We could help it but be emotional there.

We spent the night at Leboche, nearly 5,000m good thing we all felt well to head to base camp today. We all made it, strong and healthy this will be our home for the next month or so. Sadly we had to say goodbye to 3 of our friends Ali, Ziad, and Nazim. They saw us off at base camp and headed back down, we will truly miss them.

For now it’s time to rest and organize our gear

2nd Rest Day at Phereche

  |   7Summits, Mount Everest   |   2 Comments

We took a second rest day at Phereche, there was a bug going around and some of the team members were not feeling great. The guides decided it would be best if we take a second rest day. We just took a few hours acclimatization hike up the scenic look over Dengboche up to 4,400m took lots of beautiful pictures. Ama Dablam is my favorite mountain and hope t climb it one day, it looked so beautiful rising over us.

Now the whole team looks great, and in great sprite, looking forward for our trek Leboche. For now its time for getting hydrated and playing cards.

Khumjung to Pangboche

  |   7Summits, Mount Everest   |   1 Comment

We had to cross the valley 2 days ago, imagine we had to descend 500m to climb 600m to Tengboche were the highest bakery in the world exist. We visited the bakery 4 years ago while trekking to Everest Base Camp, for some reason it was way better then. It was very cool to see our stickers all over the bakery. We placed them last time we were there.

On the way we bumped into Juan orizabal from Spain who is attempting Everest with out oxygen. Climbing it with O2 is a great challenge imagine without it. He climbed 13 of the 14 8,000m peaks without O2. This is his 3rd attempt on Everest, he seems very fit, wish him best of luck.

We stayed at Deboche 3,770m which is 100m below Tengboche. the next day we started our day at the usual time trekking to Pangboche village where we met Lama Geshe. He blessed the team and wished us good luck climbing Everest. Now we are in Pheriche 4,240m where we will take a rest day tomorrow. So now we take the monopoly out and the playing cards for a well deserved rest day.
