Resting at Base Camp

Phone call from Sandy a couple of minutes ago!

Geoff and Becky, along with two Sherpas, reached Camp 1 at an altitude of 6143 m on 29th Oct The following day they went to Camp 2 at 6450m. They are now back at Base Camp resting.
Kerry and Paul have left the expedition and flew out to Kathmandhu by helicopter on the 30th.

Becky and Geoff will stay at Base Camp today and tomorrow. They plan to make their summit attempt over the next few days. So, 2nd November they will go to Camp 1, on the 3rd to Camp 2, on the 4th to the summit and back down to Camp 1 or 2. They would aim to be back at Base Camp on the 5th November.

The weather broke yesterday and there is about an inch of snow at Base Camp. However, the forecast is good so good luck to all.
