Ascent Trip ReportAdrian Keller & our porters make a nice side trip from EBC down the Khumbu valley, then west up ? valley across the "Z" Glacier in a white out storm, no ropes, axes nor crampons, and i find myself as the storm lets up for a moment, straddling a crevase! great fun. we hike down the scree west to the next valley & camp in an abandoned yak herders rock shelter. very tough day! we spend a few days tramping around Gokyo area, the down valley before Adrian heads out of Nepal for good. i head back up to EBC with "my man friday".
