Everest 2021 Update – @Jiangge_Alex – 6th May

An Everest 2021 update from Alex Fang from 6th May.

“2 hours of sleeping + BC directly to C2 + heavy backpack + bad weather = AMS.

“Suffered several mild symptoms of it: Fatigue, loss of appetite, strong headache, blood oxygen saturation dropped to 35%.

“After a sleepless night, I and Passang tried to move up but it couldn’t work, then we decided to descend, so 2nd rotation ends up without touching C3. Now I’m at BC and I’m glad that I left headaches, coughing, and all the stuff I need for summit up there. Again it’s a relaxing time.”
