Not wishing to be pedantic, but Nepal is 5:45 ahead of GMT.
Met Kenton a few times last month in the Khumbu.
Good luck to Kenton and Clive on their summit bid tonight!

Just read some of the reports, I'm amazed to see there's 70-80 people on the south col at the moment waiting for a summit push. This sounds bizarre, is there usually that many up there awaiting a weather window like this?

Arrogant guides on the Bosses ridge is one thing, but a queue up there could turn out bad. Hopefully everyone will get down OK tomorrow.

I think with so many climbers on the North Side as well, they are going to put a second ladder on the 2nd Step.

Hopefully by 2006 they will have an escalator installed, especially if this bl*ody leg of mine never heals.

There were more going for it in one night last year when a decent weather window didn't come until very late on. At least this early one should spread things out a bit.

Unfortunately that's all I've been doing for 12 months!.
Tell Mr G that I'm sure I can still outpace him even if I have to hop!

Correct. Stripey, arguably the world's foremost mountaineering mouse, is on his way. And he's opted not to use oxygen. Very impressive.

In reply to Tom, UKC News Editor: Yhe mouse was in a bad way when i met him at basecamp, lots of duct tape holding him together. I feel Kenton should have introduced me to Miss Bond think he was keeping that one top secret !!!!!!
