Robert texted this tentative itinerary to me this afternoon and asked that I forward it to you.
Nima and I leave at 4 a.m. on 5/19 and climb 5-6 hours through the icefall to Camp 1
5/20 We climb about 2 1/2 hours to Camp 2.
5/21 We climb 7-9 hours to Camp 3, up the Lhotse Face. This is an exhausting day. We sleep on oxygen at Camp 3 and above.
5/22 We climb 5-6 hours to Camp 4, the South Col, rest about 8 or 9 hours and then we leave at 8 p.m. for the summit.
5/23 It will take me 9-12 hours to reach the top and another 4-5 hours to return to Camp 4. I may then go on to Camp 2 if I feel up to it.
