team have today reached Camp 3 Spórt Corrán Tuathail at a height of 24,500ft.
thus achieving a crucial milestone in our attempt on the peak.
We now intend to retreat all
the way back to the base of the mountain to rest and recover in the highest
village in the area, Dingboche. Amidst this lower altitude and richer air, we
will prepare for our push to the summit. This will take us through our earlier
camps to High Camp Wyeth on the South Col of Everest at 26,000ft and
thereafter on the South East Ridge on our way to the top.
This push will only be made
following receipt of a clear weather window to allow an opportunity to climb
the technically difficult ground on the upper reaches of the mountain. It is
presently planned for May 20th or so.
