Laptop broken, mp3 broken, down to my last book. Time to go up. And maybe now is the time.
Our forecast reiterates improving weather this week and we actually had clear skies tonight, so fingers are crossed that this our chance.
Serge and I shall join with the Spanish team tomorrow with a view to reopening the route to Camp 2, then up the German ridge to camp 3 around 6500 metres, then to find a way over the serac barrier and up the ramp to place a camp 4 around 7400 metres, and from there to the top.
We leave early tomorrow (Sunday) morning and hope to be back down bythe end of the week.
In touch then.
