Today is my last day in basecamp. I have been on three acclimatisation walks/climbs two of which to an altitude of 5750 meter and I am going for a third today.
That altitude will be the height of my next camp, Interim Camp on the way to ABC and the start of the real climb on Everest.
I haven’t felt the the altitude this little – ever. My training up to Everest and especially the acclimatisation trip to Aconcagua has not been in vain, I come better prepared for the ascent of Everest without oxygen bottles than ever before.
Given a good weather window I’ll have a really good chance of success 🙂
