Base Camp (4865m)
Snowed in the night. Most people spent the morning sorting out equipment. A trip to the local crag was arranged for abseiling and jumaring practice, but this had to be cut short when it started to ‘chuck it down.’ It snowed again after lunch, so relaxing, eating and washing are the order of the day. The evening revolves around playing cards and listening to the world service.
