Makalu Summit Attempt – Voice mail – Midday 15th May

At midday Nepalese time, Mike and Fred leave Advanced Base camp for what will be a gruelling climb to the summit of Makalu. The guys are fit, well acclimatised and the weather window is good for the next few days with clear skies, relatively calm winds around 20-35km/hr  and a wind chill of -30°C (summit readings)

Here is Mike’s message just before he left (midday Nepalese time)
