Current Nepal Time
weather forecast is showing signs of improvements for our night at C3, as
part of our acclimatization schedule. We left BC at 5:00 am in light winds
and a beautiful sunrise on the mountains (photo of Bob in lower icefall).
It was our strongest trip to
C1 in just 4 hours. We were off to C2 after gathering some gear from our tent

through the day, but by 12 noon we were settled in enjoying lunch at C2! We'll
rest at C2 tomorrow before pushing on to C3.

his daily routine. He's stood on the summits of Mt. Cook, Aconcagua and
Denali just to name a few of his mountaineering accomplishments. Now he
sets his sites on Mt. Everest and completing the "Seven Summits".
