Climbing up the dome to camp 3 at 6450m, on the 27th of June. The Sherpas had dumped supplies there but not erected a camp. Their trail had vanished under fresh snow and we were breaking trail in knee-deep snow, some of it as insubstantial as sugar, up a wind-slab prone 45 degree slope. As Sandy put it: "If this goes, we're fucked."
