Makalu Summit Push – another 1’000m to go

Green tent at Makalu base camp

Mike Horn's tent on Makalu
Mike and Fred have arrived at 7’500m!

The strong winds, blowing snow and bitter temperatures have made it a gruelling climb for Mike and Fred but now they are sheltered in a small tent, cooking some soup.  Here they will take some time to rest as their bodies need to recuperate before they engage is the last leg of the summit push. Mike and Fred intend to leave the tent this evening, climb through the night, reaching the summit tomorrow morning, 17th of May.
