"An alpine style ascent of Tahu Ratum (6651m) is a particularly noteworthy and challenging objective, which will help raise the profile of British mountaineering." - Sir Chris Bonington - Expedition Patron.

One week to go and a new sponsor!

We fly out from Manchester Airport in less than a week!!!
Everything is coming together now and Tilley have kindly offered us each a hat for keeping the sun off during our 7 day approach to base camp. Tilley make the best, most stylish hats around and you can find them at http://www.tilleyuk.com

Luke and Tom are currently at Tom's home in the Lake District playing with the satellite phone and selling cups of tea on Helvellyn. Holly and I still have a few days left at work, I've ordered half the 700 000 rupees we'll need and we've all started taking anti-malarials. The biggest challenge now will be keeping within the 40kg per person weight limit on the flight out.

Look out for more regular updates over the coming week.
