This morning the team packed up and left the relative comfort of Base Camp and moved to Camp 1, located just over 16,000 feet. Jacob reports that the team is feeling strong, and they are moving well, climbing to Camp 1 in approximately 4 hours. The ream will rest and enjoy their new surroundings the remainder of the day. Tomorrow, the plan is to make a carry of equipment and supplies to Camp 2, then return to Camp 1 for a special Christmas dinner.
One of the many tasks at camp, digging through ice and snow in search of clean drinking water.
At Camp 1, looking up at what the team will ascend in order to reach Camp 2.
