Camp 1 delayed for a day

The team’s first trip up the Khumbu glacier was cut short when an avalanche damaged the upper part of the route through the icefall. No injuries were reported by any teams, but there will be no upward progress today so the team returned to basecamp and the warmth of their sleeping bags. The Ice Doctors should have the route repaired today so the team will have another 2:30 departure on Saturday morning. Hugo suffered a calf injury on the way back to basecamp so he will monitor the team’s progress from basecamp.
