Below the Fixed Lines Heading Back to Crampon Point and ABC
After suiting up and again looking down the fixed lines from the north col, a Sherpa came up to me and asked if I needed help. He could see how exhausted I was. I told him it would be great if he wouldn't mind descending the steepest and iciest section at the top with me. He ended up going with me all the way to the bottom of the fixed lines, where I took this photo. I then made my way to crampon point, where Lama Jangbu met me with a coke, my boots and a hug. It was like Christmas. This was to become one of the greatest adventures of my life.
