Due to the difficulty of the trek and chance of adverse weather we weren't having lunch until reaching camp, around 7hrs of trekking.
We started off as a group and quickly formed smaller groups of fast, medium and slow paced hikers! Jake was always in fast pace and kat in slow to medium.
We had two rest stops prior to reaching dead women's pass, by the time kat arrived at 2nd stop altitude sickness had sunk in dramatically, making the final trek to 4,215m to dead women's pass difficult to say the least. Thankful with the assistance of the guides, some smelling alcohol to help try and clear the altitude sickness, and support from jake and the rest of the group she made it! Jake was the first to make it to the top, in an outstanding 45 minutes!!
After some photos we headed off for camp, dropping 615m over 4kms. We arrived at camp for lunch, and then the chance for a nap, before tea and dinner and an early night.
