First Summits & Camp 3
2 November 2004    
Doooll, it's cold up here, and windy. We just got into camp 3, it's 4:30 and everyone dove straight into their well tied down tent to start melting water and making dinner.
Congratulations to Paul, Jo, Rob and Hamish for summiting today. Andy turned back just shy of the summit, a great effort all the same.
So the rest of us are quietly excited about tomorrow, hopefully we can sleep tonight at this altitude, 6400m....
Bye for now,
Mark & the crew.....
