Yesterday I mentioned that the Icefall was opening up for the climbers, and I even wrote a small piece on the Icefall Doctors over at Gadling this morning. Now we have some video of the First Ascent Team preparing to tackle the Khumbu Icefall as they train on climbing the ladders and working with the rigging.
According to the team’s blog entry this morning, climbing legends Dave Hahn and Ed Viesturs were the first to cross through the dangerous icefall this morning, reaching Camp 1 in just three hours time. Something tells me we might hear more about these guys in the weeks ahead.
