Rest Day ABC
What can only be described as a non-event type of day. Cleaning, washing, etc. The returning summiteers produce some excitement, and look completely wasted. One of them was heard to say ‘I thought that was supposed to be an easy 8000er.’ Maybe no 8000m peaks are easy?
At ABC it is a strange thing to be doing tasks and still feel tired implying that you are not acclimatised; you are in fact acclimatised, you are just doing things faster.
