Arrived at South Col (Camp 4)
Paul and Fiona arrived at the South Col (Camp 4) about an hour ago. Sorry
about the delay in letting you know, but my radio couldn't pick them up. I
spoke to Paul on the main BC radio and he thinks that where they were probably
didn't have such clear reception.
They had a terrific climb and
are now eating and drinking lots and will then rest. They are feeling great.
The plan is that Fiona and her Sherpa will start heading up to the Summit at
about 8 o'clock (Nepalese time) and Paul and his Sherpa will leave about an
Update from Paul and Fiona
I don't know if they will do an update tonight/
I will be glued to the 2 way tonight and will let you all know as soon as I
hear from them...so stay tuned!!!
My thoughts, wishes and prayers are with them and Dasona and Mingma. Let's all
hope that the weather gods are too.
