What an interesting night. I was using the throne tent when I heard some unusual noises and then a lot of barking. Turns out the bull was coming to visit the throne and the dogs that joined us in camp chased him away (thank god). We had 5 adults and 4 puppies around camp last night. A couple of major barking episodes, no doubt saving us from something.
Dawn beautiful . I set about making cowboy coffee only to lose the handle on an upward swing throwing the whole kit and kaboodle into the river. Dale fetched it and on swinging promptly sent it flying into the river again where our guide rescued the container. When all was said and done it was awesome coffee.
I’m in van today – right knee popped at end of day yesterday. Better today but being cautious. Guys were awesome on a really tough day. Peak altitude 5188m. WOW – SOS. What a day!!!
Low climb speed 4.7 kph
Max speed 64.6 kph (Farid)
6th pass – prayer flag for Andrew my nephew, Perry’s brother a life too short.
Down to camp – 4418m.
Rest day tomorrow. Welcome by all!!
