Camp 2

Yesterday, Adam and Laura did a carry to camp 2 at 3,000 m/9,700'.  They would have returned to camp 1 to sleep and will move to camp 2 today.  The general rule in climbing is to climb high and sleep low.  This stimulates the body to produce extra red blood cells needed at higher altitudes where there is less oxygen.
