Today we did a training hike up to Camp I on Pumori, a 7000-meter peak across the Khumbu Valley from Nuptse. I brought my big lens and got some great shots of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse near the top. We have one more full rest day in BC before moving up the mountain again for rotation #2, a six-day stay at Camp II and maybe Camp III as well. We have all enjoyed the recovery at BC but are anxious to get going again with the climbing.
The Mountain Trip crew taking a break at Camp I on Pumori after a great training hike. Left to right, Greg, Newell, Irik, Ephi, Bill, and Neal. Greg, Irik, and Newell are climbing as a separate group with guide Scott Woolums while Neal, Ephi, Bill, and myself form our own team. We are sharing all the camps and facilities on the trip and are on similar schedules as well.
