Back at Base Camp

Phone call to say that everyone is back at BC. They went to Camp 2 but after a big snow fall last night it was decided to return. A pretty epic time coming back with over a foot of fresh snow. Some tents damaged at BC but all OK. Forecast is not good but it should clear again by Sunday or Monday when a second attempt will be made to reach Camp 3.

Some vital statistics:
Base Camp 4250m
Camp 1 4860 m
Camp 2 6025 m
Camp 3 6500 or 6750 m
Camp 4 7150 m

And so to the tennis. Film crews here in Dunblane again today, displays of good wishes in shops, banners flying and tennis strips hanging out of windows. An exciting day that ended in a down hearted evening.

'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
