Pasang Tshering and Ang Pasang checked in from Namche today. The 3X3 Team trekked downhill from Thame this morning while the Lobuche Team trekked uphill from Phorste Tanga to Namche. The teams pulled into Namche right in time for lunch and some “thick air.” A great reunion for everyone and an opportunity to share stories of the summit of Lobuche Peak and the trek over Renjo La. Tomorrow, the team will head to Lukla.
On Ama Dablam, the weather continues to hold. IMG Senior Guide, Andy Polloczek, checked in from Camp 1 to let us know there were some clouds down valley but a “perfect night with lots of stars” above them as they prepared to settle in for the night. Tomorrow, Andy will head to Camp 2.7 and put them in position to summit. Down at Base Camp, Senior Guide Phunuru Sherpa said the team is ready to go and excited to climb! They will depart Base Camp just after breakfast and climb to Camp 1.
All is well in the Khumbu Valley!
