ABC - C1
We had a briefing in the morning from Big Boss on the oxygen sets. Although the summit attempts were all planned to be without O2, it was vital that it was available at C3 on coming back from the summit in case of an emergency. The tanks were much lighter than you would have thought. So once more through the moraine, this time with a much faster pace. A Wayfarer chilli goes down very well for supper. More drinks and idle conversation, followed by sleep as soon as possible.
