To ABC

Our 2010 Project Himalaya Everest Expedition 8848m dispatches

We trek from Interim to Everest ABC

22 April - trek to ABC 6350m

I - Jamie - warned this would be a tough trek, after all we are trekking - walking - to 21,000ft!

And yes, the air was thin and it was tough but only Fernando struggled a little. We were glad that the camp was already set up though, and the sherpas were very welcoming.

It is also an incredibly beautiful walk in parts...

Penitentes

The "Miracle Highway" gets a little thin here - Jamie

Fernando and Barry

Fernando and Barry, wow - Jamie

Everest

Fearsome Everest seen from the trail - Jamie
The bump on the skyline at the edge of the cloud is the First Step, the Second Step is the clear step
then the Third Step is where the slope changes angle, after the two snow patches.

Trekking above Interim Camp, the frustrating trail of loose rock balanced by the dramatic penitentes both sides - Jamie
