Techincal issues have resulted in no e-mail news from the expedition. We have heard that the first North Col team has reached the Col and returned to basecamp. The second North Col team is acclimatising. The Summit team has climbed to the North Col and are now back at basecamp.

Phurba, and Loppasang have climbed above North Col but high winds are limiting the establishment of higher camps and fixed rope.
