Saturday 11-9 ABC, 6400
« on: Sep 12 2004, 18:14 »

I wake up with a slight headache and my pulse-ox is quite low, so no trip to
North Col today as planned yesterday. Boris and Marc are also still tired
from yesterday's trip and so we spend the day reading, writing this
tripreport and listening to all kinds of music.

The new solar panel works great,no more polution from the generator, the
cells and the inverter work great eventhoug it is snowing most of the day.
Hopefully we can check our weather reports tonight again to see if this
weather is going to improve as promised.

At the scheduled 1300 call Werner has bad news:

'Mark T has gone down. His expedition is over... He might go home or wait in
BC for us, but he is tired and does not want to climb anymore'

Werner, Ruby and Sander arrive at 15.00, after 7 hours of hard work through
more snow and are quite tired.

They confirm that Mark is too tired too go on and that he is down in BC by
now. I will let Mark tell his own story later.

Tomorrow Sander and I will try to go to North Col to deposit our sleeping
gear and food, if we feel ok, we will try to sleep there. Boris and Marc
plan to carry some stuff to the fixed ropes,if they feel well, they might go
up a bit as well; Werner will rest one day and will try to sleep at NC and
camp 2 the following days.

The hiking of Everest is over now, the climbing has begun!

Song of the day:

- Billy Holiday: Stormy Weather
