23 Oct - after 15cm of fresh snow we hiked up to ABC where we spend a night. Next morning we continued our acclimatization climbing up to c1 where we dropped sone gear for summit push. We went back to ABC where we had another night the reason we didn’t sleep in c1 was that our first group was on their second rotation and hiked up from bc straight to c1. Today they touched c2 and will be back in bc tomorrow. We arrived in bc before lunch and are waiting now for the weather. Our attempted summit day will be 30.10.19. Wish us luck

20 Oct - today group nr. 2 had their last rest day before moving up to ABC tomorrow. Group nr. 1 came down just right for lunch and the Puja ceremony. This ceremony is a very important part of every expedition. The sherpa and the members receive the blessings for the summit. Although the weather was bad we had a nice Puja inside the lodge, the last part was outside the lodge. Tomorrow I and the german group are moving up to ABC to spend 2 nights, Tuesday the international group will move up for second rotation to c1 and try to touch c2 before bad weather will hit us on Thursday. Cross your fingers that it doesn’t hit us too bad.

19 Oct - yesterday we moved up to ama dablam base camp after receiving our blessings from the local Lama in Pangboche. We arrived for lunche and met the international members. The german group still didn’t meet before, so it was an evening full of conversations. Today the first group (Phil, Dom, Lee, Alex and Markku) are moving up to abc where they will send a night. Tomorrow they will touch c1, before coming back to bc. In the afternoon we will have our Puja ceremony
