The climbing team is about 1/2 way through a pre-summit attempt acclimatization program: successive nights at the North Col and Camp 2. One group has finished and returned to ABC this AM and another started this AM.

The long snow slope between the North Col and Camp 2 has proven to be a HOT and onerous affair for several of us.We're now looking forward to a few days of "R&R" at base camp prior to beginning summit attempts.
