Hi Erik

It is looking very good for group 1.  Good luck to the Russian part of the team!!!  I hope all of you will summit safely tomorrow.

I am happy to hear that James is feeling alright.  His time to summit Everest will have to be another day.  James...I hope you will be able to return.    :D

Harry, Lorenzo, John and all members of group 2.  I'm glad this is your last time at the North Col!!!  I hope with all my heart that the weather will hold and you will not encounter extreme winds.  This is it...you are almost there!

Cheers!

Very late last night, one of the 24 hour news programmes ran a short article on Everest with Sir Rannulf Feinnes talking via video phone. I didn't hear all of it but I'm guessing his team is also attempting to summit shortly. Weather certainly looked good.
