Billi’s progress

This is Billi’s friend Richard in Gorak shep.

All I know right now is that the weather is very good, very calm, very beautiful.

Alex Treadway informs me that Billi left base camp early on 17th. Yesterday morning she was safely in camp 3 and hoping to summit on 21st.

I am going to base camp now and will try and update you with further news on a day by day basis!
