PROJECT 321: TIM’S DIARY 29.04.-05.05.19

This week weather plagues the expedition, and Tim finally announces PROJECT 321’s complete objectives. 29.04.19 10:38  Here’s a pano that I took a couple of years back showing the Lhotse Face and all the way back down The Western Cwm  This year the Lhotse Face is looking quite icy at the moment … the snow from last week having been blown away.  Currently it’s fixed up to upper Camp 3 but the Climbing Sherpa fixing team will be trying to forge ahead over the next few days to The South Col...
