Description

After spending one night at Camp One, Hilaree and Jim started toward Camp Two, but first got stuck in a white out and so had to return back down and make an interim camp under Nuptse.

With the high risk of avalanches in the area, the team packed up and pushed onto Camp Two in a white out, making it there later that day. They spend the next few days going between Camp Two and Three, acclimatising, waiting out bad weather conditions, avoiding avalanches and collecting new gear.
