Typing the dispatch at basecamp

our objective

Wish us luck.

May 16, 2008

We’re going for it. All weather forecasts indicate our best chance is to stick to our plan of heading up tomorrow (saturday) to camp 2. We expect some snow showers on the way but Sunday should clear as we head up the steeper face to camp 3.

Up to camp 4 at 7850 metres on Monday and we’ll go for the summit at 8470 metres on Tuesday. We need to top out on the 20th and get down to at least camp 2 on the 21st before the predicted heavy snow falls catch us. All being well, the next report should be on the 22nd.

’till then.
