A quick report from base camp today, by satellite telephone. Mara called to let us know that the team were now in Camp 3 on the Lhotse Face. They climbed well through the early hours of this morning, and were now settling into the routine of cooking, resting and drinking.
The night will be spent on oxygen, and when they move up to the South Col, they will all be using the TopOut system to ensure maximal flow and intake. This will speed their ascent to Camp 4, and help keep them warm against the fierce cold they would experience otherwise, just because of the extreme altitude alone.
Excitement and expectations are running high, with the weather looking reasonable for the next few days.
