Leaving for camp 3 in the morning

The team is all set to move up to just under 7000m in the morning. Everyone is feeling fine, considering, and we plan to leave at about 5am.

The majority of the route up to camp 3 is fixed and we expect good snow conditions and fine travel up the 30-50° slopes. We will see how everyone is feeling at camp 3 and if everything is good to go, we will move up to camp 4 at 7400m and get ready for our summit attempt.

Naucho is here at camp 2 and he is also planning on moving up to 3 in the morning.

I will try my best to write tomorrow from camp 3.

Stay tuned!
