Day 12/24: Climb Putha Hiunchuli (7,246m)
We have set aside two weeks to reach the summit and plan to use three camps above base camp; at 5,400m, 6,000m and 6,600m. This should give us enough time to get acclimatized and make a summit bid in a decent weather window. We would expect to climb to Camp 2 as part of our acclimatization, before descending to base camp for a rest before the summit push. Fixed ropes will be placed on some of the steeper sections of the route between Camp 1 and Camp 2, but much of the climbing will be done moving together as roped teams. No-where is the ground particularly steep, but after fresh snow this could make the going extremely tough. Temperatures on summit day could be as low as -40 degrees celcius.
