"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.

Arrived at Base Camp

Just got a text update from the team:

"Arrived at base camp today after 6 day trek.

We had to play hardball with the porters and won after they tried to raise the price yet again.

Tahu Ratum looks stunning and the home-brew beer is brewing."

Nice looks like the floods havent hindered them and they have their priorities sorted!

Will let you know anymore as soon as I know.
