With views across to some of the highest mountains on earth, this leg of the trip is one to remember. As we continue our journey, we have unfortunately had inconsistent satellite phone communication of late, along with other electronic methods virtually non-existent (which is not uncommon in this part of the world), updates back home, have been our toughest part of the trip. The group is traveling well, training and acclimatising to the conditions with ease, and have reached heights of 5400m thus far. These trips are always an eye opener and give you a renewed appreciation for life. With conditions now in our favour, all going well the team are on track to summit in two days’ time. Everyone in the group sends a big smile and “hello” to all back home.
