18th June 2009: More from Base Camp

There has been an amazing fall of snow.

Sandy had an "interesting" night when his tent collapsed on him in the "wee small hours" with the weight of snow. Lets hope Mr Stoats man had his hands over his ears!! Other tents where OK although everyone and everything was rather damp and wet. Ed troubled by a dicky tummy, but is OK! Sandy has re-pitched his tent and all is as good as it can be!

Weather now improved and they have seen Nanga Parbat for the first time. It is heavily clad with avalanches racing down its faces. The day turned into a beautiful one.

High altitude gear is still awaited from Karachi...

Rick Allen and Sandy managed a walk to an altitude of 4620 m (300m higher than Base Camp).
