Top of the Geneva Spur with Camp 3 in the background
Climbing the top of the Yellow Band. Can you see the yellow tents down the hill?
When we retuned to Camp 3, we spent another night and then left for the last camp before we tried for the summit. We carried our sleeping bags and warm clothes in backpacks. You can see Camp 3 in the picture and climbers coming over the top of some rocks. Climbing over rocks this high up is very hard. There is less oxygen in the air so you have to breathe harder. It is like climbing steep stairs while holding your breathe. Try it one day! I started to feel sick about this time.
