Weather looks OK. Whereas Lhotse Team already headed to Camp 4 today and from there they will start their summit attempt round about 2 A.M or 3 A.M early morning.  Please wish them for Luck.

21 May - Update from Kaji Tamang. Everest Nepal Team are going to South col today whereas Lhotse Team are going to camp 3.

 

Climbing the final few steps into camp 3. That's the Geneva Spur on the left (Squash Falconer). Climber works her way up the hard blue ice at the top of the Lhotse face (Alex Holt).



19 May - Update from Kaji Tamang - Everest Team are going up to camp 3 today, whereas Lhotse Team will take rest in Camp 2. Weather looks OK here at the moment.

18 May  - Update from Matt W. for Lhotse News - Final equipment checks have been done, acclimatisation rotations are complete and weather forecasts have been checked... tonight we (Tom, Heiko and I) head up on our summit run to the top Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain the world at 8516m. Scheduled summit date is 23rd May but of course this could be delayed once we are up there by any number of things. Wish me luck and I'll see you all next week with some new (tall) stories!

I forgot to mention that if the summit date stays as 23rd May 2018 it will be EXACTLY 10 years to the day since I summitted Mount Everest... which will be pretty cool

14 May
- Lhotse News from Matt: - Just got back to basecamp after a successful 4 day rotation to camp 2 (6400m) in the middle of the Western Cwm and camp 3 (7100m) halfway up the Lhotse ice face. Very cold and windy few days, especially yesterday up to camp 3. Stunning to be back in the cwm though being overlooked by Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse - the summit of Lhotse was staring at me every time I opened my tent door, as you can see.
