Arnold reports in: Hello EverestNews.com. This is Arnold, the leader of
SummitClimb's Everest-Tibet Expedition. Right now I'm calling from the highest
camp in the world, at 8300 meters, Camp 3 on the north face of Everest. I'm
here together with my wife Maya Sherpa, our Sirdar Jangbu, and also Ron is
here. Unfortunately Richard couldn't make it to Camp3, he took to long, so he
decided to turn around and he's finished for the summit.
Our plan is to leave 11:00 Chinese time this evening and I hope tomorrow
morning we will summit around 7:00 or 8:00. So stay tuned. We are the last
group from our team and then hopefully I can call in a few more summits. The
weather is good. It was windy before but now the wind stopped a little bit.
So, I think maybe we're lucky. So, you'll hear more from us, bye bye.
