Audio recording from Bill at Camp 3 (24,500 feet) talking to John at Camp 2 is now online. Bill is climbing with Thendorjay Sherpa. John, having had to turn back from the first day due to illness is now trying to catch Bill and meet him at Camp 4 so they can summit together.
As you'll hear from the 3+ min recording, if John can't meet him, he's suggesting Bill push ahead to summit on Thursday May 12 (Nepal time) as was planned. The report is that Bill is feeling stronger at Camp 3 then he was at Camp 2, and he's eating. In fact, the report is that Bill is going fabulously and very strong.
The weather window of May 12th is still the date. Though it's snowing heavily, as John reports, at Camp 2, Bill reports it is snowing only lightly at Camp 3. The plan is for Bill to leave for Camp 4, the South Col, at 5am May 11. That is a big height jump and makes for a big, big day. Bill will be moving past 8000 meters into the death zone to get to Camp 4.
