NEWSLETTERS - Everest Spring 1998

Newsletter 41 May 1998

I have been busy during the last few days, the weather has been good and so progress has been great. We moved up to ABC 6400m on the 21st April and then established C I on the North Col 7000m on the 24th. This camp is now fully stocked with all the equipment required for the rest of the climb, and on the 29th wew established C II at 7500m.

Today is a rest day at ABC before we go back and establish C III (7900m) & C IV at 8300m over the next 3 days. If the weather and conditions stay as they are, we should be looking for a summit attempt about the 20th.
