From base camp, we adopted a more traditional schedule of carrying/caching gear higher and returning lower to sleep and rest. Then, moving everything up to higher Camps. Ultimately we continued this process to Camp 2 and Camp 3 which is main camp before the summit.
My goal going into this was obviously the summit first, secondly I wanted to get over 20,000 feet (6,096 meters) and my last goal was to at least reach high camp (approx 19,600+ feet or 6,000 meters).
Unfortunately I was unable to summit. However, I did make it somewhere between 21,400 (6,522 meters) and 22,200 feet (6,766 meters). Although I did not make the summit, I was still very happy with how I did. The views are pretty amazing that high up!
The second picture below was taken on the summit day after sunrise. I believe I was somewhere around 21,000+ feet in altitude when I took this photo.
If you compare the two pictures you can see that the first one we are just above most of the surrounding mountains whereas the second photo is significantly higher than everything around. Both photos were taken in roughly the same direction.
