This morning the weather was not too great but the plan was for Paul to go back to camp 1 to collect the remainder of our food and gas. As we didn’t know what the weather would do the next day, we made the decision for him to go.
It took Paul about 2.5 hours to get down with 3 abseils along the way. By 12pm he’d packed up the gear and was heading back up. 2 hours in and he was about halfway, but the second half took another 5 hours or so. He arrived back at camp 2 at about 7:00pm – totally exhausted.
I cooked up some curry pasta and it was straight to bed for a well earned rest.
