GREAT excitement as Willie and Damian depart for C1 and C2 the day after tonight, to get everything final little detail ready up the mountain, and to be followed by our members on May 20, 21 in C2!
Base Camp is a flurry today – preparing down suits and mits, energy snacks for the 6 day push to come, spare socks and batteries for the South Col, final checks and plans all around! Even the dispatch of some unnecessary items to KTM and the chance to have something clean (we hope!) waiting there after the task to come!
Blog dispatches will be daily from now on.
