We woke this morning to a cold and cloudy day. After breakfast a few of us strolled through Base Camp and watched one of the climbing teams sharpen their snow and ice skills on the edge of the Khumbu Icefall. We then walked a short distance into the Icefall, but it soon started snowing, so we headed back to our camp for lunch. It snowed on and off for the rest of the afternoon as we played some bridge. The food in BC has been fantastic and everyone has coped well at 5350 metres. Tonight will be cold again but we move lower down tomorrow where the environment will be a little bit more hospitable.
Tomorrow the team head down to the village of Periche.
