Fresh news from the mountain that Rob and James, with the rest of the Adventure Peaks team, have arrived safely at Camp 2 (7800m), where they will be spending the night. Apparently there have been no problems and the pace was strong all day. Experience counts this as one of the hardest days mentally, and the expedition leader reports that ‘everyone is in a really strong frame of mind to keep up the good pace’. The team will start to use bottled oxygen tomorrow, which should be a shorter day up to the final camp at 8200m. They are still on course for summitting on Wednesday morning, which hopefully marks the start of a two day weather window of calmer wind.
