Well we’re back to the South Col. I wasn’t able to get a satellite signal on the ridge, perhaps because it’s the border with China and Nepal. It went down like this, we left Camp IV about 4:00, I mean 11:00, 4 hours later at 3:00 a.m. we arrived at the Balcony. At that stage I think … at the same time it was cold, it was about 18 below 0 Fahrenheit last night and I think the most common complaint was that people had cold feet. So we got back to the tents and everybody’s checking their feet for whether they’re black or not but they’re not actually. I don’t have any frostbite, it doesn’t look like Leif has any and nobody else has any either so that was good. But we continued on, the route is very steep this year, goes over some very challenging rock bands, which made it kind of exciting. And then just as it came to the south summit, sort of a snow squall came through but it was still pretty good visibility. And got to the summit, got all kinds of pictures of each other and banners and things like that so that was good to be up there. But it was plenty cold and windy so we started down. Now we’re back at the South Col, and we’re feeling good. So I’ll try another dispatch and get rid of this cough. Thank you.
