"The hardest nine hours of my climbing career" quotes Lorenzo who is once again at Camp 2, acclimatising for his ascent of Lhotse. He is starting to feel the strain from repetitive climbs at high alititude. Unfortunately the weather has taken a turn for the worst, with a heavy fall of new snow and stronger winds predicted in the next few days. There have also been problems with a dangerous collapse of large chunks of glacier ice between Base Camp and Camp 1.
