Bibler tent Started for BC from ABC by ~1000hrs. Bhanoo administered IV to Ang Tashi Sherpa who has not yet recovered.Stopped at the Korean tent to check the status – but the Sherpa wasn’t very forthcoming.

Some new tents have come up. The water level in streams have increased. Throat bad, cough even worse. Had lunch enroute. Pande and Bala Sir came to receive us a short way up. Reached before tea-time. Changed. Settled into my old Bibler tent. Went to Sherpa Hotel with the rest. Had two small glasses of beer.

Got to know that IFA has become a major irritant for Anand, that he blames Anand for not letting him go up to the summit !

Late dinner.
