Climbers in the Cwm betweem C1 and C2

There's a huge crevasse that opened up right next to our C1 tent, so needless to say I was happy to be departing this wanne-be dark hole. Also, the winds battered us here at C1 last night, another reason to be getting out of here. This will probably be our last over night at C1, so Pemba and I had huge loads to carry to C2, or more like Pemba had an extra large load and I had 5 lbs that felt like 50. He also had my emotional support to carry that load, hence, the reason my load was so heavy. It took us 1/3 the time to go 2/3 the distance. The last 1/3 distance to C2 was so enjoyable we took our time...Q#(*%*$&@&. The acclimatization is going well.
