Yesterday, I made it to camp 1 at 21,000/6,400m! We touched camp 1 and went back to abc to sleep. Tomorrow, we will head up to sleep at camp 1 and then go higher to prepare for the summit attempt. One week ago, there was no way I imagined I would be back up on the mountain, especially not at these altitudes. I was so sick, all I could think about was going home. Sometimes, those setbacks along the way make the accomplishments even sweeter. There is no such thing as an easy 8000m peak. I’m taking it one day at a time and breaking it into manageable pieces, but hot damn, I am so grateful to be here, surrounded by the most stunning mountains and glaciers I’ve ever seen. #MountainsAreForEveryone #chofosho
