Day Seven – Wednesday 5th October 2011

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.

    Guess you’ll all be getting some sleep soon, ready for your early start. Looks like its going to be cold but you should all have a really nice sun rise on the crater rim. All the best and I hope you enjoy your summit day. By the time I get up you should be standing on the summit. I look forward to the update tomorrow. Dave WMRT.
