This morning our first members summited. Urs & Lakpha Sherpa and David Roeske
& Lakpha Nuru Sherpa summit around 10am Chinese time this morning.
Unfortunately Jerry & Palden Sherpa turned around at 1am Chinese time. It was
a very windy day and not an easy summit. Urs, David, Lakpha and Lakpha Nuru
are resting in camp 2 at 7800m and will descend to ABC tomorrow. Jerry and
Palden descended to the North Col and they will be back in ABC tomorrow also.
The 2nd team (9 members & 9 Sherpa) are in Camp 3 and will push for the summit
tonight. Bo is trying to summit from camp 2 and will leave tonight also.
I hope tomorrow I have more good news!

Our first summit team reached camp 3 at 8300m in good time. Urs & Lakpha
Sherpa, Jerry & Palden Sherpa, David Roeske & Lakpha Nuru Sherpa are resting
at the moment to get ready for their summit attempt tonight. Depending on
conditions they probably will set off at 11pm Chinese time and are hoping to
summit on the 22nd in the morning.
The rest of the team is in Camp 2 at 7800m, spending the night and will climb
to Camp 3 the following day. Their plan is to summit on the 23rd. Also this
team is doing well and all members reached the camp in reasonable time.
So I hope I can call in the first summits tomorrow morning, stay tuned.
