Ascent Trip Report

We were 5 people (guide + 4 clients)
Day 1: walking up from 5000m to 5200m with tents, food, and gear to a place where we set up our camp. Dinner and early bed.
Day 2 (7 Aug): waking up and walking up mid-night. After 6 hrs 2 of us reached the summit. 2 others joined us within an hour. It was a beautiful sunny day.
No altitude sickness due to long acclimatisation (3 weeks prior I was at altitude above 3000m)
