Phil Crampton gave us this update from Altitude Junkies on 27th April.
“We held our Puja ceremony on the 25th of April as this was considered an auspicious day from our Lama, who resides in Pangboche. Many of our team members recognized him, as he has conducted many Pujas on our AmaDablam and Cholatse expeditions through the years.
“Our Sherpa team had planned to carry some loads to Camp Two today, but just as they were to leave Base Camp, we received a radio call informing us that the route to Camp One was impassable. Hopefully the Icefall doctors will fix the issue today.
“Our team members plan to tak a little walk towards the Icefall today in order to iron out any potential issues with new boots and crampons.”
