Increasing excitement...

NEWS from camp 4 - Tom, Christian, Eike, Frank, and Roland arrived well in camp 4 on the South Col. So far everything is ok. They now try to catch some sleep, and soon, at midnight Nepali time (about 8 pm Central European Time) they will start towards the summit. The weather is good, the shape of the team is perfect.

Unfortunately, Eckhard had to turn back on the way; he is returning to base camp. But he is ok. A decision which surely was not easy for him. But healthiness comes before risk - a choice which requires a lot of self discipline.

The next 24 hours will probably bring the decision if a summit success is possible and if luck and the gods are with our team.
