Team reports having a great day working more rock and ice skills tuning up for Lobuche East (6119m-20,075ft) in two days time. The tired team is all checked into their tents early tonight and getting some serious shut eye.
Our base camp trek team members are in Lukla tonight celebrating their last with Ang Nima and crew and are hoping for clear skies tomorrow morning for flights in and out of Kathmandu on schedule. The morning skies have been beautiful with an occasional skiff of snow just 1 or 2 cm here and there, nothing significant. Most of the precipitation appears to be hanging lower in the valley so it is possible Lukla could experience a few hiccups getting flights in and out on schedule. Nothing big in the horizon that would warrant trapping them there for days on end that can, and has happened in the past.
Tomorrow the TC team will pack up and head over to Lobuche base camp and prepare for their final ascent on this adventure. Everyone is holding strong and having a lot of fun.
