Warm and Windy on Lobuche

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

Over the last couple of days, all team members summited Lobuche, a 20,000′ acclimatization peak, and will spend 2 nights sleeping on the summit. On the 25th, the whole team will be back at Base Camp and Adrian will do a quick turn-around in order to head toward the icefall and start sleeping higher on the mountain. The weather is particularly warm, making the current conditions on the mountain like those of a typical year in late May. The Sherpa will have ropes fixed all the way to Camp III in the next couple of days, and things seem to be on track for another successful season on Everest!
