Everest – Day 26: Acclimatization

April 24 (Wednesday)

Today I went on another acclimatization hike with Lakpa, this time to camp 1 of Pumori, at about 19,000ft.  That’s about as high as Camp 1 of Everest (at 19,500ft).  I went at my own pace at Lakpa’s patience and I gotta say, I felt fabulous!  I really think that I just needed those couple days of rest and extra acclimatization.  It seems that even though ‘active rest’ worked for the majority of the group, my body just needed good ‘ol bumming around and laying horizontally.

I came back to base camp feeling energized and full of hopes for the rest of the climb!
