The comforts of Camp 2

The team is safely ensconced in the relative comfort of Camp 2.The route from Camp 1 to 2 zig zags across the Khumbu glacier which can move up to 3 feet a day keeping climbers alert as they negotiate the crevasses and icewalls commonly found on a massive, moving glacier. After arriving at 21,000 feet, they will spend a couple days here allowing their bodies to adjust to the new altitude. At Camp 2, the HAEX team will enjoy the comforts of a cook and dining tent to make the difficult job of eating at altitude easier.
