Hi all. Here's the latest from Everest. Harry reporting:

"Lorenzo, John and Harry arrived at Camp 3 (8300m) @ 16.45 PM local time. Tired but safe. All day snow storm, which was very hard work.

Nate, Dmitry and Alex arrived a bit later. They are now also in Camp 3.

Robert has gone down again, had to abort ascend.

We are now trying to get some rest before we head for the summit."


The 7 summits club, group 2 folks have planned to leave for the summit at 01:00 AM Beijing time tonight.


Good luck Harry and team!!!

Erik

Here is wishing the whole group the best of luck!  Lets hope the weather is good to them and they can all fulfill their dream of reaching the summit of Everest safely!  We all know they deserve it more than anything.

Love you Dad and so, so proud of you!

Guys

I guess as I write this post you are braving the weather and the cold harsh conditions on your big push for the summit.  God-speed you all upwards and the best of luck with the weather.  Go for it guys and then get back down into camp 3 ASAP!!!  Good luck Harry, Lorenzo and John - hang in there!!

I guess Erik/Chris/Romke's next post will tell all! Waiting with nervous excitement and anticipation.
