Fabrizio has called in to let us know that all is well in C3 at 7400m after a 6 hour climb from C2. All team members are doing well and looking forward to pushing up to C4 in the morning. The climb from C3 to C4 is just 3-4 hours and a gain of 200m or so but puts them in a great position to summit. With weather reports being reasonable for the 24th they have decided against trying to go directly from C3. They are joined by quite a few other teams with the same plan so they will have good company on the move to C4 and on the summit day!
More news as we have it!
Here are the two audio dispatches from C3 - Enjoy!
