13th October

We’ll we’re all back at basecamp – we were the very last team to leave the mountain this year. Pretty exhausted so this is a very short update.

Essentially I didn’t get to fly from the mountain – I tried but had issues with the wind and made a number of abortive attempts before calling it a day. That and I was the last person on the hill above Camp 3 – everybody else was at Camp 2 by this stage …..

Ok – so here are a number of images from the summit day – Ben and I will put together something a bit more substantial when we’re not quite so tired.

Contemplating the wind from camp 3
Ben – walking into the welcome Sun on summit plateau
Mal – on the top at 11:20 am
Ben – just chilling out at 8156m ….
Summit cake – back at basecamp
