9th August 
Andrey has called from ABC to say the team are now back down safe after making their summit bid. The team reached 6300m on their summit day, but with a combination of weather and fatigue the team decided to call it a day and head back down. Tomorrow they will descend to base camp and then depart for Osh on Thursday.


3rd August 
Everyone has now been up to 6100m and are now resting comfortably at Advance Base Camp.  It looks like there is reasonable weather coming in so they will wait for the weather window before making a push for the summit.


2nd August 
Andre called to say that the group are all well. They are at camp 2 and are going to push up to camp 3 to sleep tomorrow.


29th July
Andrey has called in with a report letting us know they have now completed an acclimatisation walk up to 4700m and completed a skills day practising crevasse rescue. The team are all feeling good and enjoying playing in the snow!
