20th May update

All good here…getting warmer and less windy by the day and we are looking at going to the summit around 25 or 26 May…meaning that we will leave ABC either on 21 or 22nd May.

I am well, eating well, feeling strong apart from the lack of muscle in my legs but I am hoping that we will get a good shot at the summit. Some teams summited on 17, 18 and 19 May but now the winds are picking up.

    Summit!! Well done and congratulations, hopefully you had a good view from the top. It sounds like you timed it well with the weather, I hope you can get your heli out to Kathmandu soon.
