Becky has just phoned home again. Now safely back at Lukla with Mollie and Matt and due to fly back to Kathmandu tomorrow morning. Summitting Everest has still not sunk in. She was unable to walk out from Base Camp because of very painful frost nip in her toes and apparently all her toes are still numb but she says they should be OK. She made it down to Pangboche on a horse and then by helicopter back to Lukla. All in good spirits but very tired. She is due back at university next Monday morning! A very big thank you to the hundreds of you who have followed Becky's expedition and for all your messages of support. Again, thank you to Henry and Rob for making this possible. Good Luck to Kenton and his team for tomorrow night's summit bid.
