Camp 3! (and tough GPS conditions)

As part of their second acclimatization rotation, the team reached Camp 3 on the Lhotse face hours ago. Due to the steepness of the Lhotse Face, a clear view of the GPS satellites is sometimes difficult and can produce location errors in the tracking as you can see by couple of the data points in the map and elevation profile graph above. Rest assured that I'm certain they didn't go up and down as the track might suggest and we have received word that the team is safely tucked in at Camp 3 after a long day of climbing.
