At 2am, our Sherpas left camp to climb through the Khumbu Icefall with loads for camp two. I overheard our expedition leader saying: Sending the Sherpas through the Icefall is like sending your boys off to war. You never know if they’re going to come back’. To be quite honest, I’m very concerned about this season on Everest. There are major line ups in the deadly Khumbu Icefall which will likely translate into line ups higher up. It’s almost May and we haven’t even set foot on Everest yet. I have no idea when we’re leaving or what’s going to happen next.
