HUANTSAN EXPEDITION'S JOURNAL
Sophie Denis I Aug. 5th 2010
July 19th - Base Camp to Advanced Base Camp
After a short walk towards the Moraine of Huantsan North, we found a cozy* camping spot. We set up there our Advanced Base Camp ~4,600m.
We packed up and started off at 9:00 am. We walked on the Moraine for ~2h.
We were not excepting doing an open bivouac
AND we did not bring with us a bivouac bag
