George phoned today on the satellite phone. he will be leaving camp at about 10.30pm on Wednesday night and hopes to be at the second step by sunrise and on the top by about 8am Chinese time. This will be about 3am uk time. Adventure Peaks are going to try and keep the live updates coming throughout the night. This depends on the reliability of the satellite phone. If you want to look at their website, there is a link to the right of this post. It sounds as if some of the backlog of climbers has cleared and they think they may have the mountain to themselves that day.
as soon as we hear anything, we will send out an email. please forward this on to anyone who knows what George is doing as we are bound to miss someone out. We are hoping that George will be able to call us from the top but there is no guarantee.
Fingers crossed for all the team on their summit bid.
Penny and Mark
