IMG Update: Getting Ready for Camps 1 and 2 April 14, 2008

IMG leaders Tucker and Jangbu report that the Icefall doctors were back to work in the Icefall yesterday, but took a rest day today, and hope to finish the route to Camp 1 tomorrow. We now have the green light from the Nepal Army to start building Camps 1 and 2.

The last few days have been good practice for the team members to hone their skills with the oxygen systems, icefall techniques, ladder crossings, fixed ropes, use of the stoves, etc. All good stuff to master prior to going up high. So far everything is going fine with the team.
