Wilco van Rooijen, Rex
Snelder went up and stay for the night. Tomorrow Rex will celebrate his
birthday with a new personal height record. They will try to climb above 8000
meters. Then they will return to ABC. Ron Doorakkers felt very tired and sick.
He did not climb to camp 3 but decided to go back to ABC. Dawa sherpa assisted
Wilco and Rex with camp 3 and went back to Northcol and later on to ABC.
