I am from Mexico City, I tried to climb this mountain but some problems started on the first ridge, where wearing crampons and ice ax was necessary and my guide did not have any ice ax, water, harness and one snowbar. I had to borrowed him one Ice ax (I took two from my country I did not want to use fixed ropes)and water so that I felt insecure about climbing higher with only one Ice ax and with this guy. We reached almost 6000 meters and It was fantastic, such a great view of Ama Dablam, Makalu and Lhotse. It is not easy to find water or snow even in the base camp, very cold and windy.
