I just heard from Paul that he and Attila are well on their way to Camp 4. Right now they’re just past the Yellow Band – a sandstone outcrop on the Lhotse Face. This means that they are somewhere between 1/3 and halfway to camp 4. They still have to cross the Geneva Spur.
The weather today is absolutely clear with bright blue skies so I imagine they’re feeling pretty warm.
They’re using oxygen from camp 3 onwards and for today’s climb they’re taking very careful note of the pressure drop and the time period so that we can double check that the regulators are delivering the flowrate that they’re set to.
Looking forward to receiving today’s weather report, but presuming there’s no big changes, Paul and Attila will leave camp 4 for the summit tonight.
That’s all for now,
