Ascent Trip Report

Felt too unwell and weak to climb, so Gorak Shep was my high point on the trip. Plan was to climb Island Peak. Was glad to make it back to Lukla. And out the next day on the last flight before Lukla airstrip was closed for about a week, stranding many people in miserable conditions.
