Description

The route from Camp 1 (C1) to C2 wasn't the most challenging of routes.

As you can see its quite a short route across the glacier then up a short scramble towards C2. Its actually pretty simple but made harder due to the altitude.

This was our third time up to C2 so our bodies had acclimatised nicely and it was pretty straight forward (I have given it a 'moderate' rating because of this, the first time was a lot harder!).

Crossing the glacier wasn't too challenging but you have to be careful, there were crevasses everywhere! Mostly covered by a thin layer of snow which made them incredibly hard to see.
