Everest Nepal Training Climb Blog: Since arriving in Everest Base Camp, the
training team has been working on acclimatising and training in the
surrounding area. We have had some great views of Everest Base Camp from a day
climb up grassy and rocky slopes to 5800 metres/19,000 feet, which although a
vigourous day out, has helped with our conditioning. We have also been working
on our climbing skills in the Khumbu Glacier, with some spectacular views of
both the Ice Fall and the amazing ice sculptures of the glacier itself.
Our small team is now complete, with the arrival of our last member, Gary
Murray, beating the snow that has draped the camp in a thick layer of white
this afternoon. We are all feeling good, despite the altitude, and are looking
forward to further exploring the Khumbu Glacier around Everest Base Camp over
the next few days.
