Team Miura down from Camp III
0-1:53 a.m. EDT Apr 28, 2003
Yuichiro, Gota, and Muraguchi have completed their third acclimatization trip up to Camp III, 7200m. They spent 4 days above the icefall and have reached Camp III, 7200m. 70 year-old Yuichiro climbed most of the Lhotse wall without oxygen support - it was only above 7000m that he used it.

They are all down in base camp right now and will head down to Pheriche, 4200m tomorrow to recover and energize in the thicker air. The team expects to be back in base camp on May 3rd and be ready for a summit attempt.
