Mountain Madness team were at South Summit, local time 6.15am - 6.30am. Everyone doing good.

Alpine Ascents, 5:20 am:
"We finally got a radio report from Chewang, who is assisting Vern and David, and is also helping put in fixed lines. He was calling from the balcony, where he had run out of fixed line rope to install, and was waiting there for Vern and Dave. He says the conditions up there are really good – cold but very low wind. Everyone is waiting for the sun to hit soon to warm things up. He can see a whole line of people making their way up the mountain, but everything seems to be going well.

Meanwhile, Dave Morton, Jose Luis, Lakpa, Esther, Danielle, and Tony are at Camp 2 having breakfast and preparing to move up the mountain to Camp 3 today. Willi has been up a good part of the night helping monitor the radios, so he will stay at Camp 2 supporting all the teams."
