Hot at the Icewall

Dear Family & Friends,

Although our first night in C1 wasn’t 100% comfortable everyone pulled through and we all set out – on September 17th – for the ‘Icewall’ approximately ½ way between C1 and C2. It’s hard to believe that at 6800m this feature is almost the same height as Ama Dablam….

    

The Icewall @ 6800m

Even at this altitude temperatures reached a scorching 39˚C and a couple of team members woke up at ABC this morning wishing they’d applied even more sunscreen/zink….

Today and tomorrow are much needed rest days before we head back up the mountain for our final rotation – the aim being to spend 1 night in C1 as well as C2 @ 7000m.

Soren

PS – Tillykke med Fødselsdagen Annika!
