Departure from Basecamp - 22-23 July 2007

Leslie left Basecamp on the 21st of July to walk ahead of the team at a more leisurely pace. The two High Altitude Porters stripped Camp 1 of all the tents and equipment. The team spent two days drying and packing the gear into 25 kilo loads for the walkout. This job was made challenging by continuing heavy snow.

Mick Parker is staying behind to have one more attempt at the summit. He has joined Jamie McGuinnis’s Project Himalaya team.
