 BRAZILIAN EVEREST LHOTSE EXPEDITION is sponsored by

O BOTICΑRIO, VOLKSWAGEN and PETROBRΑS

21st day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Base Camp ( 5,400 ) - Ice Fall ( 5,800 ) - Base Camp.
Facing the Ice Fall.

Another sunny day, the first with no snow or rain.  With to time to waste, we climbed the Ice Fall again, along with the SPCC team.

I have to confess that I am very proud of the Brazilian team for their disposal.  Bonga, Irivan, Paulo, Alir and me carried the ropes, flags and aluminum ladders up the Ice Fall.  We fixed more than 400m of lines and improvised four bridges with aluminum ladders, across the longest crevasses.

Just next to the 5,800m we found snow up to our waists and thought that we had to do a lot of effort to get where Camp 1 is located.

The Japanese, like yesterday, did not go out of Base Camp.

There you go, go Brazil!

Namaste!
