Return to base camp

We flew from Kathmandu to the small village of Lobuche on the morning of May 4 and then walked a little under three hours to base camp. Our foray to warmer weather and better appetites was wonderful. I feel so much better, both mentally and physically. We managed to miss a lot of cold and snowy weather during our absence and I for one am grateful.

It looks like we will have another day or two of this less than ideal weather but our tents are dry and comfortable.

The rope fixers are currently putting in the rope the last 400 meters to the South Col and the our amazing Sherpa staff will haul tents and oxygen to there in anticipation of our summit bid. Phil believes we will summit around the 15th which is quite early. There will be no complaints from me!
