Go up? Go down? Wind is not calming down…

Satellite phone call from Benoit Monday pm:

The team is now well established in camp 3 on 7100m altitude. Jean-Marc, who didn’t fancy too much the development of the situation, went back down to base camp in the afternoon.

As for the others in camp 3, they are in great shape but concerned about the wind that keeps moving forward the dates when it is below 40km/h on the summit. Above 40km/h there are risks of having to turn back… Should they stay one day in camp 3 to see how it develops or go up even higher? They will take the decision tomorrow morning when they wake up. Meanwhile they try to get a good nights rest, still preparing for a summit push the night between 17-18 May.
