Last sunday I did my first backpack training. With a medium pack I did a day hike in the Ourthe valley starting at Nadrin. Here the Ourthe river cuts deep into the Ardennes plateau. This 10 km hike does not only offer stunning view but is also a great way to practise with a lot of vetical meters. I will a a topic to the Mountain factbook under others. (Ourthe valley walk)
On Everest team are stuck in Basecamp. High winds are reported at camp 1 and some teams report blown away tents? The waiting game is on.
