Today, we left for our summit bid! By the time you are reading this, we’ll already be up at the North Col.
Here is the planned itinerary:
Thursday, May 19th: climb to the North Col @7000m
Friday, May 20th: climb to camp 2 @7800m
Saturday, May 21st: climb to camp 3 @8300m
Sunday, May 22nd: attempt the summit @8848m, and return to the North Col
Monday, May 23rd: return to ABC
I’ll have a satellite phone and will try to call in updates from each camp if possible.
It just got real!
