North col. Dawa sherpa returned to North col, had a hot drink and continued
down towards ABC. At approx. 18.00 hr. Everest-time Wilco arrived in Camp 1.
He is very tired. Both expedition members have enough to drink and eat. They
will spent one more night at North col. Regaining some strength. Saturday
morning at 10.oo hr Everest-time they both will descend to ABC. ETA at ABC:
