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.
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 !!!!!!
