Thanks a lot Roger
Hmm new lessons.
Had a lot of problems with camelbacks/bladders etc. Always knew cant be used in real cold weather but had a lot of problems with leakages at lower altitudes.
A lot of people say that you dont need boots to get to Camp 1 but with the bad weather, it was often the case that the last 50-100 m to Camp 1 was in snow, so something more substantial than low cut shoes is preferable.
Instead of using 2 slings for the fixed line, one attached to ascender/jumar, another as a cows tail with biner through the other end of the jumar, we just used one sling. Hard to explain but was much easier to use. Not as safe though as 2 slings though because of lack of redundancy.
Nepalese matches are the worst in the world. Bring own matches.
Wish I had taking more actual climbing photos.
I will add more as things come to mind.
