RECORDED: MAY 10th, 2016
I have been preparing for this trip for so long and finally it’s time to head up the mountain! It’s all or nothing as we make the first moves up to Everest Camp 2. I am excited!!! and happy that I got this far. While editing this video, it is actually hard to believe I am actually climb the Everest. As I said in the previous vlog that I was going to leave half an hour earlier than other team members today. The camera is frozen but luckily it was able to take footage.
I am sorry I wasn’t able to record the rest my way to camp 2 because I have to ascend 1,200 VERTICAL meters on the way to camp 2 and literally I was very exhausted. I gave up my backpack to the sherpa, I felt really guilty but I was trying to maintain my strength. I never felt like this before, It was complete lack of resources. The whole valley has changed (see my 1st rotation here) and tomorrow we have to continue up to Lhotse Face 500 vertical meters up a wall of ice and snow. Wish me luck!
By the way, I did some color filtering on this video…. whats your thoughts? good or bad?
P.S. Mount Everest trip is my first solo trip climbing a mountain by myself. This trip is very meaningful to me. As you know, I have been working out these years, saving money to accomplish on of my big life goals! This trip which I thought were merely fantasies is now accomplished!
I am very excited to share my exciting moments in Everest with all of you. Vlogs for my journey to Everest will be uploaded daily in my Youtube channel, check them out here.
