The hike to advanced base camp on Everest’s Northside is one of the most beautiful and challenging hikes I’ve ever done. It took us two days to cover the 13 mile, 4500’ distance ending at 21,000’. Arriving at abc, I felt awful. It’s amazing that the body can bounce back and recover. We had a super chill rest day up here today, and tomorrow, we’ll go for a light walk. There were meltdowns along the way and I forgot how much I hate the feeling of being at such high altitudes. I have to fight the homesickness and remember I chose this and that the feelings of discomfort will pass. #everest2019 #climbforequality
