Mike at Makalu advanced camp.

Fred and I have now arrived at Makalu advanced base camp at 5’700meters, just another 1’000meters higher than base camp.

We have found a nice place to camp with incredible scenery and it is here we will base ourselves for the next 4 weeks to acclimatise. Today is a rest day for us. We are waiting for the snow to pass and tomorrow if the weather is good Fred and I will walk up to Camp 1 and back. We will place a tent and some food reserves at Camp 1 in preparation for the summit push around mid to end of May.
