a consequence the AC team is heading down to BC.
Twice they tried to move to C3 but the winds knocked
them back. Had the weather been kinder and the team
managed to get to C3 to stay they would have
completed their acclimatization and be poised to
make a summit attempt when the weather allowed, and
when our excellent Sherpa team had positioned
supplies at South Col, C4.
far no-one has been to South Col and it appears that
it will be at least another week before anyone
manages to get established there. This would put the
earliest summit attempt at around the end of the
first week in May.
wonderful weather we experienced earlier in the
season seems to have been replaced by a series of
jet stream winds which we hope like heck will not
prevail too long!
members are well and going strongly. Guy
