Tuesday, 08 September 2009 00:00
The team have reached their Base Camp for the day, from where they will make an attempt at summit tonight. The ascent today proved tough for some of the team but Jerry reports that all are well. After Lunch, Jerry will lead a short acclimstization walk if the team feel up to it. After dinner and a few hours rest tonight, the team will leave Camp at 11pm for Summit.
'Our Camp site is situated on an exposed ridge, making it necessary to familiarise yourself with the terrain before dark. As every other day, the porters have erected the tents and are preparing supper. The team are busy preparing their gear for the summit bid and ensuring all headtorches and camara's are working as they should. It's cold but will get colder as night progresses..'
Our thoughts are with the team and we look forward to hearing the next update- from the Summit!!
