Hi everyone - this is Matt Taylor from England. I arrived at Advanced Base
Camp (ABC) yesterday with Shivesh from USA after an 8 hour walk up from
Interim Base Camp. On the way up we walked along a stone moraine with amazing
valleys of ice seracs, some up to 200ft high either side of us!
We were greeted by our friendly Sherpa and kitchen staff team and we settled
into camp life at 6400m, with some delicious warm food and good company.
Half of the Everest Summit team had already left ABC for the North Col, whilst
the other half remained in ABC to rest until today. So as of this morning all
the Everest summit team have departed ABC for time on the North Col and they
are all doing really well. Shivesh and myself are aiming to summit on the
North Col and we remain in ABC and look forward to taking it easy and resting
as we acclimatize to this new altitude.
Everything is OK - we miss all our families and friends and we look forward to
sharing more updates with you as we make progress.
