Jagged Globe

Yesterday (14th April) morning the team had an acclimatisation hike to Pumori Base Camp.

Today (15th April) the team spent the morning in the Khumbu Icefall practicing their ice climbing skills. Three of the Jagged Globe Sherpa team (Pem Chiri, Sonam and Nima Galgyn) set up a ropes course and the climbing team were able to familiarise themselves with the techniques needed for ascending and descending fixed ropes plus ladder crossings.

This afternoon was spent relaxing in Base Camp with a slight snowfall coming down.
