29th May. 17 today!

George phoned yesterday from Basecamp. yaks went up to advanced Basecamp to help carry all the kit and caboodle off the mountain. Next is the transportation back to Katmandhu.

BUT today is Georges Birthday. So if you are reading this, please leave him a birthday wish in the comments.

he is looking forward to getting home.

Thank you to everyone who has sent their congratulations. We have saved all the emails for George to read. ITN did a great story on News at 10 on Friday night. I don't know if you can look it up on their website and play it back, but it was a really good article. They managed to get a summit photo before we did but they sent it on to us. I have been trying to post it here on the blog.

  7. Dear George,

    Congratulations with your great achievement and birthday! I hope you are doing very well.
    For two Dutch newspapers for kids and teenagers I would love to interview you about your climb to the top and record achievement as youngest climber of the seven summits. Would you be available for a short interview by telephone or e-mail the upcoming week?

    Best regards,
