Tomorrow we climb!

October 16, 2012'  Everyone is back! 
All climbers are back at base camp and the trekkers are now on their way down the valley and will hopefully get some photos out soon. There's been a glitch up past Namche Bazaar for Internet services this year. We are on the move this expedition, not stationary like we are on Everest so we opted to keep to the tech toys to a minimum and rely on the local services but that didn't work out so well and we are in a location where the 3G signal can not be reached. After Island Peak we will be passing through the 3G zone and hopefully we'll be able to Stay tuned...  over and out... get something out. 

Kala Pattar view of EverestThe Island Peak team arrived back at camp yesterday after a successful summit climb to the top of Kala Pattar (5545m). Today we all had a good rest around camp telling stories and discussing tomorrows push up to high camp. We've carried the ropes up and equipment so we're ready to stage ourselves for the first of three summits this expedition will be undertaking starting tomorrow.
