Base camp was a smorgasbord of gear: cams, ice screws, ropes and harnesses set out. My clothing that I had ‘washed’ was hanging up to dry on a piece of cord strung between my skis. This was a move for morale: I couldn’t do another long day in those long johns without trying to wash some of the sweat out. Time now to decide what food to bring, and then fit it all into a pack.
