9th Aug – The team have now arrived in Bishkek and are trying to change their flights to come back a few days early.

8th Aug – The team will be back in Osh today they mad an attempt on the summit mid-week last week. The team made to to 6900m before deciding to call it a day. The unusually hot weather they are experiencing at the moment made the summit day much harder than normal. Good effort all round. The team will fly back to Bishkek tomorrow.

6th Aug – It appears the team have had some problems with the Sat phone during the trip. We’re not exactly sure what the problem is at this stage. Our agent has had word from the local staff to say the team are now back down as ABC and will descend to BC tomorrow. As soon as we know more we will update the news page.

27th July – The team arrived at base camp yesterday and enjoyed a fantastic dinner of mixed kebabs. They made their first acclimatisation walk to 4300m today and will move up to ABC at 4400m tomorrow.

25th July – The team have arrived safely in Osh, they have made their their final preparations and will head to Peak Lenin base camp tomorrow.

Peak Lenin at 7134m is the third highest mountain in the former Soviet Union and is situated in the Pamirs range of Kyrgyzstan.

21st July – Dave has departed the UK today ahead of the group. The rest of the team will depart for Kyrgyzstan on the 23rd July.
