Finally the summit push!

We have decided its time to do the summit! Yeah – the weather window is good for the next few days with light winds and clear skies!

We will leave tomorrow, the 15th of May. Our plan is to climb to our camp at 6’700m, spend one night there and on the 16th, climb to 7’600m. At 7’600m we will rest 4 hours in our small tent and at about 10pm we will leave the tent, climb through the night and get to the summit early morning on the 17th of May.

After reaching the summit we will try and get all the way back down to base camp. It will be a very long and tiring climb but it will be the safest climb.

Mike and Fred will try and call whilst on the climb and from the summit. We will be waiting impatiently for their news and hope that nature and mountain will allow them the huge privilege of reaching its magnificent summit.
