Rest Day

Today was quite a lazy day. We got up and had breakfast. The weather was very good and we heard that during the night, some people left for the summit. It was their normal plan.We checked the weather forecast again and consulted several websites. All of them still indicated that Sunday was the best day to climb. So, during lunch, we decided that we will run the risk and postpone our summit attempt to Sunday. This leaves us tomorrow to rest as well.

Dasha told us that she will teach and practice some ice axe handling and self-arrest in the event that we slip and fall in the snow. This was to be done the next day.

We spent the entire day roaming around the Barrel’s Hut with nothing much to do. Benson put on some good music and did some dancing while the others roamed around taking photos. This was good in a way that our bodies were getting acclimatized and was recuperating for our summit attempt.

That evening, we had dinner at 7pm and then went off to bed. We chatted for sometime before going off to sleep as there was no urgency in getting up early.
