Robert called before he left and said that he was well and very pleased to get moving up to Camp 1. The plan remains the same. The summit attempt is planned for May 21.
I just checked the Junkies Everest dispatches and the team reached Camp 1 safely. One member did go back to Kathmandu but they didn't say why. There are now 9 team members and 13 Sherpas.
We will probably have a few more very brief postings. Robert could be back in Kathmandu by the 25th or 26th if all goes well.
