Off to Camp 3 Tomorrow!

Everything is set for our first trip to Camp 3 at 24,000 ft. A big day
actually. We climbed to the base of the Lhotse Face today to around 22,500
ft.. Tomorrow its up the blue ice of Lhotse Face to C3. All reports say its
fixed well with both up and down ropes. Now if we can get some good weather
as it has been on and off snow and wind here in camp today. All our Sherpas
are carrying loads to the South Col also tomorrow at 26,000 ft. So we are up
early, sherpas are leaving at 1am, we are leaving at 5am. Standby for
tomorrows report!
