The team spent yesterday at Camp 2 acclimatizing with a hike to the base of the Lhotse Face, while the Sherpas are hard at work fixing ropes to Camp 3. Â Today they will return to EBC for a few days, and hopefully that will give them a chance to make the 2.5 hour hike down to Gorak Shep where they can email out some photos. Â Meanwhile, if you want to get a REALLY high-resolution look at Everest, check out this link. Â Famed filmmaker David Breashears (who spent a few hours talking to our Wounded Warriors during their trek) has assembled a number of ultra high-res images into a single zoomable image that will blow you away!
