April 20th, Martine and Lapka Sherpa made their way to camp 3 at dawn, they passed through the famously difficult Lhotse Face. That day, Martine met Peter Hillary, son of the great Sir Hillary. Lapka Sherpa had the unfortunate idea to take off his sunglasses, the ice reflection badly damaged his sight, since then he is in serious pain, he had to be walked back for treatment.

April 22nd to April 26th, Martine and Lapka Sherpa were back in Base Camp for rest, laundry, visiting other climbers who are part of various expeditions, and tend to Lapka Sherpa's eye problem.
