Camp 1 above the icefall
Camp 1 above the Khumbu Icefall. How many yellow tents can you see?
We stopped at a camp at the top of the icefall. The strong Sherpas carried the tents up the icefall and set them up for us. Rob and I stayed in the same tent. Many teams put their tents at the same spot so we could look after each other plus it was a very flat and safe place. We put thick mats under our sleeping bags to keep us from getting too cold.
