Jay from SummitClimb calling in with the latest news
from the SummitClimb.com International Pumori
Expedition. It's a gorgeous day here in Base Camp
today. I'm going to hand over to Walter Reisinger from
Canada and he's going to give you the latest info on
what's been happening the last few days. Here's Walter.
Jay. Like Jay said, it's a fantastic day in Base Camp here. Most of the team
is down in Base Camp although one group is going up to ABC today. That's
Matt, Phil, Walter, Jon and Bert. They're going to spend the night there
tonight and head up to Camp 1 tomorrow and hopefully explore the route higher
towards Camp 2 the day after. Tomorrow, a second group of us is going up to
ABC. That would be Amanda, Aussie John, Jay and Jack. I have some good news.
The storms we've had the past few days are gone, and hopefully we have a more
settled weather pattern in the next little while. That's it, this is Walter,
turning it back over to Jay."
Reilly: OK, so that's it for our latest news. We'll be updating again in a
couple of days. Thank you for listening. Goodbye.
