Mingmar and I made it up to the end of the fixed line. The elevation was about 19,500 feet. Camp one will be about 25 minutes further up the icefall. We reached our high point at 10:20 AM. After a short break we headed back down. At the first ladder section we waited while the icefall doctors came up with additional ladders (two each) to finish the route to camp one.
The longest ladder section so far is four ladders up and ice wall. There are two of these section and many single and double ladders spanning over crevasse. Some of the ladders over crevasse have a bit of tilt to them that makes the crossing a little more interesting.
