We have received confirmation from Fiona that Paul has departed South Col to make a second summit attempt.
A recent email from Eric Simonson of IMG provides more information:
9:35pm Nepal time
Here we go again!
Jangbu reports that Dan, Jim, Pemba Dorje & Tashi Tshering left South Col at 9:20 and that Paul and Tashi Dorje are getting ready to head out a few minutes behind them. The new weather forecast is for “more of the same” which is good news. We don’t expect to hear from them until they get to the Balcony in 4-5 hours. We’ll keep you posted!”
We will continue to post updates as we receive them. Best of luck to Paul as he embarks upon this incredibly difficult endeavour.
