The plan from Camp 3 1.30PM


The team reached Camp 3 at 1PM today. As expected it's a little windy but this should ease off by the evening. Tonight they'll sleep with supplemental oxygen to prime them for the next stage, hopefully tomorrow if the weather holds, they'll move to Camp 4 of Everest and Lhotse.

At the moment it looks like our Everest team will climb with may be a few independents, but not many. The route will mostly be theirs. Sumit reported that an Astrek client reached the summit today and one is expected tomorrow.

Lakpa and Chirring will continue where the fixing team reached on the Lhotse route, and will fix the last 300m of the summit blocks during their summit bid with Pasang and Chris following behind. Sumit is manning operations from Camp 2.
