Day 6 Up the Mountain


It is snowing at base camp. I am thrilled to get into dry polartec long underwear and a reasonably warm tent.
We got here in 4 hours of continuous climbing. We are to rest before heading to the summit early tomorrow. We take the summit and return here. Happy to rest. Hope there’s some sunny relief from the snow.
I am pleased with my slow steady rhythm. Easy to get gasping for breath at this elevation even from just taking a breath. We’re at 4681m at Barafu Camp.
After lunch we had to go up a bit to sign in. Got wet on that little walk…argh!
Have to find my driest wet things.
I heard Ian say, “Hi Honey!”
