Valerio Massimo Everest Expedition 2009

6pm – bedtime Camp 2

May 1st, 2009 by Valerio

Need to get some sleep now before rising at 4am May 2nd to tackle the straight 1000 Meters up to Camp 3.  Largest vertical ascent yet.

Alix and Trich’s paths have diverged, having reached Gokyo Ri at 5300 Meters – Alix continues on towards Base Camp, staying just ahead of a storm, currently perched on the edge of a “giant glacier” as she calls it, (not having seen a really big one yet)

Trich felt reaching the same height as Base Camp was a personal goal achieved and messages from her body encouraged her to head back down.
