20 May 2013 -
The Summit group who left yesterday reached C2 at 7800m (25,600 ft.) and is
doing well and will be heading to C3 at 8300m (27,230 ft.) tomorrow to
position themselves for their summit push on the 22nd. At the moment Urs,
Gary, David Roesky, Lakpha Sherpa, Palden Sherpa and Lakpha Nuru are in C2.
This morning the rest of the members left ABC to position themselves one day
behind the main group. They are all sleeping on the North Col tonight and
Unfortunately Moulay turned around today close to C2. He was having a hard
time and decided to come back to ABC.
Stay tuned for more news tomorrow.
