Camp Cólera

Today, we move from Camp Two to Camp Three, Camp Cólera, which is also the summit camp. Tomorrow, we are going to do the summit push. It is going to be the longest and hardest day, as everybody talks about here.

My walk to Camp Three was okay. The summit lacks oxygen, so I start huffing and puffing even when I record this message. Hopefully, Scott is able to get this message properly. We will try to sleep as early as possible today, because perhaps tomorrow we are going to get up at 2 or 3 in the morning and then we’ll start our summit push.

I’m good overall, except that my nose was bleeding so I started to breathe through my mouth. It seems my mouth is now burnt, however I believe the mountain is just doing its job; I choose to be here, so I have no complaints.

On another positive note, the weather at Camp Three is remarkable, it is exceptionally good, no winds; this place is known to have strong winds, so we are truly, truly lucky.

I’ll try to connect tomorrow, after my summit push.
