The team made their way to Camp 1 yesterday morning, beginning their final acclimatization rotation before returning to base camp to rest in anticipation of the summit. The morning was cold and windy and the night was punctuated by small rockfalls and avalanches off Lintgren and Lo La, not in danger of the route. Soon temps warmed as the crew reached C1 and the sun hit camp. Everyone made impressive time though the ice fall which bodes well for their stated goal of tagging camp 3 on this rotation.
