Robert has been working on acclimatization and improving ice climbing skills by climbing on the Khumbu Ice Fall above C1 and then spending two days up at C2. He is now back at the Everest Base Camp.
He called this morning to tell me that he and some others will hike down to Gorak Shep for some more variety in the dinner menu, something other than noodles. The other reason for the hike is to have Internet access. He tells me that he has a full report to send to us. We may have some photos too.
