Descending to the North Col
Julio, Con and Phanden stayed at camp 3 for the night. Gene had already descended to the north col. I returned to the north col by myself and took this photo during one of numerous stops. At some point, Lopsang and Lama Jangbu passed me with heavy loads and headed all the way down to base camp. When I finally reached my tent, it was full of water and very lumpy. I inhaled a tuna pouch, positioned my body around the lumps and shivered and slept when I could. It was a bad night and I was in bad shape.
