South Side Dispatch:
"On Easter Sunday, April 15th, we returned
to base camp after 3 days at camp I. We
went up the Khumbu Ice Fall into the Western Cwm
(the bells ringing in the background are from a
Yak that just tripped over my tent rope).
Camp I is located at about 20,000 feet so we had to do
We climbed half way up to camp II. Our
purpose was to get up there and get used to the
altitude. Originally we planned on two
days at camp I but a foot of new snow and high
winds pinned us down for a day. Everything
is going well with the climb. We will
remain at base camp a couple of days before
making it back up the mountain. The next
goal is to get our belongings up to camp II. On
the 19th or 20th we will go to camp II for a
couple of days. All is well and I am
looking forward to moving up the mountain.
It is hard to believe it has been just about a
month and we are half way into the climb.
Keep the faith. Talk soon. Charlie
