Is climbing Island Peak more difficult than Everest Base Camp?

I recently lead an expedition for Earths Edge to climb Island Peak, ticking off Everest Base camp along the way.

I’m home a few days now and have had a good bit of time since summit night to contemplate this.

If your body runs out of fuel then….well you know the rest!
