Day 44: Summit Push – North Col – rest stop
(from Grant’s Thuraya SATPHONE)
Rest day here at North Col (tuesday) – sunny mixed with snow showers. hard to have proper rest here, and dreading another restless night staying awake. Sittingout the bad winds , and hope to make the climb to 7600m tomorrow (wed).
Note from david: For all you FB -addicted fans – and fans of Axe, do bear in mind sending an SMS with cold fingers in an icy tent while trying to maintain satellite link-ups is usually a once a day affair when you are on the move, let alone at 7000m! SO do text him your support but anticipate brief updates only. CHeers
