Report No 5 - Friday 23rd
April - From Jill Pinkerton, Adventure Peaks Office: Great news Dave called
this morning to let us know that 8 of the team (including Dave & Paul) reached
the North Col yesterday (7000metres), Serena also did a great job and reached
about 6400. (Kevin & Tony are still at BC with chest infections) The team
returned to ABC yesterday, everybody is really well and pleased. They are
enjoying a well deserved rest today and tomorrow, then Sunday they hope to go
back to the North Col to spend the night, with the hope that in the morning
they push to about 7300, before dropping back to ABC, then BC on Tuesday next
week, weather permitting. Once at BC they will enjoy a good long rest before
moving back up.
The Teams laptop at ABC is
having technical charging problems (not bad at 6400metres, with -25
temperatures) therefore the team can not currently send/receive emails until
they return to BC, they do however still have use & access to the sat phone to
contact family & loved ones. For information, even though the team are
climbing the North Side in Tibet, they do however work on Nepal time,
therefore they are 5 hours ahead of GMT.
We continue to wish the team
a safe and successful expedition, and keep our fingers crossed that the
'weather window' comes good!!
