I am happy to report that Robert has made it safely to Camp 3 with his faithful guide Nima Nuru. They are camped on the side of a cliff, perched on a carved out platform of ice and snow. A team of 6 Sherpas took several hours to have these flat surfaces ready for the tents. The drop off is 2,500 feet.
After a long 9 hour trek Robert and Nima were treated to a panoramic view. Robert says it is amazing to see Camp 2 below, the western cum and a myriad of mountains he named but I couldn't write them down fast enough.
Robert's knee is feeling much better. Thanks for your prayers and concern for him.
