Camp 2 bound


AND…Team Typhod has begun their hike to Camp 2. I’m eagerly waiting for photos and hopefully an email to find out how it went. From what I have read, Camp 2 sits at 21,300 ft. and is littered with abandoned gear, as the fatigue from the lack of oxygen and strenuous hike causes climbers to lighten their loads. It is very important that the team move about as they need to breathe deeper since the level of oxygen is lower the higher they go. They are located in avalanche territory as well. I did receive this video from Elsa that Thomas captured when they were hiking and suddenly heard an avalanche. He caught the first part on video, but when the Sherpas started running, they also ran, which is smart, and also why the video is so short.
