Ladder Training and Resting at Base Camp
Yesterday we spent sorting out our hardware that we would need to go through the ice fall then putting that into practice on a course that we set up out in the lower glacier straight out from camp.
Our course involved a horizontal ladder some steep jummaring and a steep rappel plus some arm or Sherpa rappelling something we will spend most of our time doing as it is the fastest way down the mountain.
