Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp #1 & #2

Date: Friday, November 9
Location: Periche, 14,170 feet.

Long and very tough day. But, wow, had 3 of us and 3 Sherpa climb Kala Patar. The view is stunning. You can see from the South Col the whole summit ridge. But not just Everest. You are surrounded by giant peaks of immense beauty. We hung prayer flags from the summit with names of loved ones. Ask you loved one if your name is there.

The climb starts before the sun hits us so very, very cold. We went slowly and got there in two hours. 

From that point it is all down hill toward home. Sort of.

We were all pretty well hammered from the altitude. Plus the Khumbu cough is going around....

We got to Periche in the dark. And it was cold. But we made it.

Hopefully the lower altitude will help us heal.

Jan, thanks for the update on Mack, we miss. Sorry he had to go home.
