Grant’s Update from ABC – May 15th 2012

( via SMS to David Lim)

Left BC at 615am – arrived at ABC at 2pm. I hate this 17km walk. Hope its the last time. Few coughs in the team but everyone made it in their own times OK. Tomorrow – to the North Col. I feel good and cant wait for some climbing. Sick of walking. Thanks for so many beautiful messages to satphone from all over the world. Gives me a huge lift. Out from ABC

[ David’s NOte: Please note that you are best texting Grant your best wishes on his Thuraya mobile number (see earlier post) as he will NOT be able to read your comments until he returns to basecamp.  I will send some selections of course, but do, if you wish restrict your greetings to  a 100 character SMS if you are texting him directly. Cheers ]
