Back at Base Camp

Yury called for an update.

He is back at Base Camp after spending several days acclimatizing at Camp 2. While there, he took a hike additionally 200m up above Camp 2. He has been staying in a tent by himself. The weather is unusually warm and he is feeling pretty good, and his pulse is on target, though his oxygen saturation levels could be better. They will spend several days resting at BC before making another ascent, this time to Camp 3, then down to sleep at Camp 2. Finally they will return below BC to have a final big rest before starting the trek for the summit.
