Team Pat on way to Camp 2 15-11-12 9AM

Pat's Ama Dablam team are on their way to the infamous Camp 2 (i.e. a tiny rock ledge on top of a pillar) for their summit attempt. They acclimatized on Lobuche East and are now making a direct attempt on the summit without the need to rotate multiple times on the mountain. They aim to be on the summit on Nov 17. You can follow Pat's updates here:

The Very Best of Everest team are rounding up back to Lukla after a very successful climb of Lobuche East, crossing of Cho La and Renjo La passes, and climb of Gokyo Ri. They have completed a full circuit of the Khumbu, Gokyo and Thame valleys, an all encompassing journey of the Everest region.

Chris and Susan have left Thame today for Parchermo base camp, which includes a crossing of Tashi Lapcha pass (5755m). They plan to summit the mountain on Nov 17.
