Everest Camp 1

We climbed to Camp 1 yesterday.  It was an exciting and challenging day as we navigated through the Khumbu Ice Fall via fixed lines and ladders.  We arrived at Camp 1 feeling healthy and strong.  The views here are even more beautiful than I imagined.

We hiked part way to Camp 2 today and returned to Camp 1 for the night.  We will move to Camp 2 tomorrow.

Thanks for following along.

    The photos are just amazing and it’s really making me consider a base camp trek

    Camp 1 is beautiful. Looks very different from EBC. You are still on earth aren’t you?????

    Don’t let your guard down, stay strong, and know that many, many people are praying for you and your team.

    I went to the Madison Mountaineering site this morning and the transition from the jagged uninviting ice fall to the serenity of camp 1 is amazing. It is like you climbed into another world. Sending well wishes from home. Love you.
