1 November 2004    
Welcome one and all to the wildest show on earth, alpine climbing, Himalayas style! The Adventure Consultants team is in full groove mode now, and the summit pushes are underway!
Team one led by Paul, and filmed by Hamish, consisting of Jo, Rob, and Andy have just reached C3 and are preparing for their summit push tomorrow! Team two led by Luis and Mark and also being filmed by Mark consisting of Joe, Kate and Todd have just arrived at C2 and are busy settling in, moving to C3 tomorrow to meet team1 on the way down from hopefully a successful summit bid!

So stay tuned and keep your fingers and toes crossed that the weather, our health, and our supply of chocolate holds out!

Till then,
Luis and the merry ramblers.
