Gavin Bate Everest 2002 Expedition

APRIL 22 2002 Advance Base Camp, Everest: We spoke with Gavin again today - apparently he and Will are back at ABC having completed their third carry to Camp 1. They are now fully stocked at camp 1 (21,450ft) and ready to face the next stage - the camp 2 carry. For the moment though they are both knackered because of the exertion over the last five days and are looking forward to a rest day tomorrow.

In terms of the weather, it has worsened again and they are quite happy to sit tight for the moment. As soon as I hear anything more I will let you all know. 

Cheers, Richard
