We (Matt, Mollie and I, aka "the kids") are about an hour away from basecamp in Gorak Shep on our way back up after our rest days down valley. We'll have a rest day and then depending on the latest weather, we'll probably head up the mountain on the 14th, aiming for the summit window around the 18th-20th. Exciting stuff! Attached is a photo of Everest (the black looking mountain on the left) taken in the Western Cwm.

You have crammed so much into the last twelve months, going to Uni would be enough for most young people.You are nearly there now so good luck once more Kate (Isadora)
