Today we woke up at 5:30am. At 6:00am, Johan, Sonam Sherpa, Lakpa G. Sherpa, Chamba Sherpa, Pemba Sherpa and I were started walking to the Ice fall. The route was to go up…and down the ice fall in one day. At the end of the ice fall we turned around back down.

Sonam and Johan couldn’t go up to camp one. Rest of us went to camp one then after we came back and met Sonam and Johan one the way down. The way down was as hard as the way up. The whole day took us around 8 hours. Johan and Sonam Sherpa were not feeling so good when they came down. The ice fall is where many accidents happened so we were very careful.
