Tapis 1

And here are a few belated picts
Alan and I in tent. 1st night at Kem 3. We were smiling. But photos only tell so much... we were very very tired. Trekked for 6-7 hours plus with our full loads already. Then returned to find our tents wet and used our shirts to dry the tent. 9 plus then. Had to wake up at 3 a.m. the next morn to scale summit.

Night trekking to summit. An ardous 4 plus hour Class 4 scrambling ascent. 500m above sea level to summit (approx. 1512 m-if I still rmb correctly). Thank God we didn't have to carry the full pack. (N.S. guys don't laugh... know you guys can do much better...)

Sun peaking through the clouds. Little moments of exhilaration that pushed us up to the very top…

Near summit, 20 metres to go if I remember correctly.
