Hellow this is Ben calling in from Ama Dablam Base camp in the Khuimbu. Its a lovely afternoon and we've just had a rest day here. Did out last fixed rope practice, practicing now vertical ascending on the big boulder at base camp. Looking to head up to the mountain tomorrow if the winds and the weather cooperate which they have been - really lovely at the last week - and we heading up to camp 1 to begin our summit push. Everyone's feeling really good and we had a great time over on Island Peak. Luckily managed to get a nice little weather window and had a lovely summit day over there. We do have fine reception up on the hill so I'll be able to put through a few more dispatches from camp 1 camp 2 and hopefully this summit. All the best guys and stay tuned. Ben from Ama Dablam base camp. Over and out guys.
