Safely arrived in upper Camp 3 @ 7,300m. Sleeping here on ledges on the Lhotse face, before continuing to C4 South Col tomorrow… So far so good…

Waiting almost over…

Tomorrow night at 1am we’re going up the mountain to start the ascent towards our summit bid! Planning to summit a few days later, when conditions are right!

The best way to cheer me on and show your support is to donate to my charity project! I have done a lot of research to find a charity in dZi Foundation that does great work, with a very high  payout ratio to the actual projects, ie low overhead/friction costs.

Your help and contribution is appreciated!

Thx
Thomas

Update for prospective UK donors to dZi Foundation

Dear UK based friends – the bureaucratic hoops in the UK are taking just a little bit longer to jump through, but hopefully the UK specific donation Page shall be up and running soon… Jim Nowak, President of dZi Foundation, ensures me they are on the last steps… Prospective UK donors, please e-mail Jim on jim to tell him you intend to donate, and he will notify you when the page is up and running. Please wait up this page is ready, because then dZi Foundation can get UK “Gift Aid” tax benefits, resulting in 25% more money to the charity, and more resources for our school project!

Thank you,

Thomas

Climbing celebrity visiting our base camp: Reinhold Messner

Reinhold Messner, first person to climb Everest without oxygen, in 1978, and first person to climb all 8,000m peaks

He was there with a film crew shooting for Austrian and German TV, and stayed for lunch. Very interesting conversation with this legendary pioneer of a climber. Even though he obviously is on a different wavelength and thinks its not the real thing to climb with these commercial expeditions, he admitted that Chongba’s food was excellent :-) Really nice guy…

Here together with one of our guides: Lydia Bradey, first woman in the world to climb Everest without oxygen
