The team checked in from Camp 2. Everyone is healthy and doing great. The team’s American flag is the highest point in the camp which sits at 21,100′. The start to the day was cold with single digit temperatures in the early morning, but it warmed up and turned out to be a beautiful day. With the Lhoste face looming overhead the team can see their next objective. Above the camp the IMG team is high on the Lhotse face fixing ropes and the guys can’t wait to get up there themselves.
26 April – Camp 2
