Our first summit team reached camp 3 at 8300m in good time.
Urs & Lakpha Sherpa, Gerry & Palden Sherpa, David Roeske & Lakpha Nuru
Sherpa are resting at the moment to get ready for their summit attempt
tonight. Depending on conditions they probably set off at 11pm Chinese time
and are hoping to summit on the 22nd in the morning.
The rest of the team is in Camp 2 at 7800m spending the night and climb to
Camp 3 the following day. Their plan is to summit on the 23th. Also this
team is doing well and all members reached the camp in reasonable time.
So I hope I can call in the first summits tomorrow morning, stay tuned.
