Camp 3 (6,400 meters)
At the far end of Mushroom Ridge, just before we start climbing upwards again lies Camp 3. This site has been relocated since the Dablam collapse in 2006, to a more sheltered position, just off the east side of the ridge. There is a tiny spot here underneath an ice 'mushroom' that you can dig into and squeeze on two or three small tents. This site is protected from the wind and falling serac debris from the 'Dablam' above Camp 3.
