These two pages are a tribute of sorts to our guides and porters. They were friendly, worked tirelessly, and, in general, made our climb a much more cushy experience than it would have been climbing without them! Although I only know the names of some of our porters, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them.

Note: if you see a thumbnail in this sub-report that has a color around it, it means that the image is an additional one that is not included in the main trip report.
