24th May

news from Adventure Peaks says that the team has reached the North Col (7020m) and today will head up to Camp 2 (7800m). So they will be underway right now. On Wednesday they will head up to camp 2 Camp 3 (8250m). After a rest of a couple of hours the team will make a staggered departure for the summit between 21:00 and 22:30 (16:15 and 17:45 on 25th May UK time). George will be the last to leave camp 3.They should all be on the top by 8am uk time on the 26th. A quick descent should see everyone at Camp 2 or lower before nightfall and everyone back to ABC by the evening of the 27th.

there have been bitterly cold winds at the top but many teams have already summited and the top is indeed clearing of other climbers leaving the field clear for the AP team. The advantage of this is that there should be no hold-ups on the way up, waiting for other teams on the ladder at Step 2.
