Acclimatization Day

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

The team has had spectacular weather thus far en route to Ama Dablam. Currently, there are high winds above 6000 meters, however, it is calm and clear down low, where the team went on an acclimatization climb today up to 18,500′ and they were able to glimpse views of Ama and many of the other high peaks around the Khumbu Valley. The sherpas arrived at BC two days ago and they report that the mountain looks to be in good condition although still it seems no one has made it past Camp II. The rest of the team will arrive in BC tomorrow, where they’ll be able to glean more information about their climb ahead.
