I received a text at 6:36 our time! The Team are packing up and heading for Base Camp – Barafu Camp – with the intention of trying for the summit tonight!! They are all feeling well.
On a more personal not this is a message for Jeremy from Gillian, she is “missing you and feeling well. Take care. xx”
They arrived at Base Camp at 14:54 our time after a short but tough trek. Every step has been an effort with headaches coming and going. Arrival at camp coincided with a snow storm which made setting up camp, and I quote “interesting”. They will be having tea at 18:00 local time with a rest and then setting off in two groups at 23:30 and 24:00 for the summit.
