Consultants Everest Expedition 2002
29 April: Lots of snow this morning, about
20cm last night at BC and at C2. All are down at BC
except Lhakpa Dorjee, Phu Tashi and Pemba Rinji who
are at C2 with Chuldim and Mingma. They have fixed
rope to above the yellow band already. So the group
rests. We had a Sushi night last night with Japanese
noodles and Miso soup. Went down a treat with all!
I'll advise when the group move up. The weather
forecast looks dodgy for a few days with more snow
anticipated but we'll see what transpires. Guy
1 May: The Adventure Consultants climbers have left
Base Camp for Camp 2 today, in fine weather. They
intend to climb to Camp 3 tomorrow or the next day
to sleep overnight at that height (7200m).
