It's early Sunday morning in Nepal/Tibet, and Duncan just updated the latest from Everest north side, 7100 meters. Duncan called his BC to report that the weather on Everest seems to be finally cooperating - the winds are light.

Gavin Bates is pushing on the south side, and the north has a push as well. Recently qualified NZMGA aspirant guide Tshering Bhote and his team are encamped at 8300m and plan to make a summit attempt on 29 May.

As planned, Duncan's team spent the night of the 28th and a rest day at the North Col, re-building their level of acclimatization and preparing to go higher. They are planning to head up on the 29th to 7900, after another night at 7100m, and are still aiming for a summit push on 30 May.

Check out Duncan's live automated tracking center (links section). You'll find his current altitude, position, local time, and latest weather report...
