Makalu ABC, 17.400 ft. (Michael K. Jørgensen).
We are sorry that you haven't heard from us for a while, but we have been
working ourselves to the bone in establising and improving the camps and
carrying loads up and down. But is seems like everything is running smoothly, at
least for the moment; what tomorrow will bring, we never know. But it is worth
mentioning that the McKinley tents, especially the Denali model, is doing a good
job on the mountain. The Denali tent has been pitched in Camp 1 as well as Camp
2, and especially in Camp 2 it has been put to a test, as the wind in 22.000 ft.
is pretty hard.
