10th November – Himlung Himal Summit Success.
Sudden we were there… no more uphill! Hugs and muffled congratulations all round and attempts at photography and even video. Views across to the Annapurnas, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre – absolutely crystal clear!
9th May: The team moved to Camp 2 on Thursday getting ready for their summit attempt, and this morning James, Zach, Phil and Jason made their summit bid. They set off at 2.30 a.m this morning and by 6.30 a.m had reached 6400m at the base of the ridge. Due to the recent heavy snowfall, there was excessive snow on the ridge, to the point that crevasses had opened up. It was decided that conditions were too difficult to continue, so the team made the wise decision to descend.
