Just heard from the satellite phone that the weather took a turn for the worse. An unexpected storm blew in, resulting in biting cold and high winds. Our team is hunkered down at Camp 2, digging in to prevent their tents and gear from blowing away. Everyone is reported to be fine and their spirits are high. Two of the climbers have been sucking on the oxygen bottle, to help keep them warm and happy.

That’s it for tonight. Tomorrow morning they will re-asses the weather that they see, the forecasts, and together with Russell Brice will decide what their best course of action will be.
