Day 34: April 29
This is Sarah Henley
reporting from base camp. Well, even thought this was a rest day it turned
out being a fairly active day. Gene, Gary and Murray took a hike down towards
Gorak Shep. They were interested in moving their legs. However, it is nice
to leave base camp for a change of scenery. This place can definitely become
to feel some what of a bubble. While they were out Willie and Phenden Sherpa
scouted around the lower part of the ice fall for a good spot to simulate the
Hillary Step. Apparently, they found a great area and fixed some ropes for
the guys to practice tomorrow. More on that later!
After lunch Willie, Gene, the
Sherpas and I organized a bunch of food for camp 3 and 4. The camp 4 food is
set aside for their summit attempt. Now everyone is resting in their tents
listening to the snow fall. Yes, it is snowing again! It has been snowing
most everyday for the past week and a half, mostly while I was gone. Folks
who have been here year after year say this weather is unusual. Lets just
hope it is getting it all out of it's system and things will turn around in
